    Purchased Disc was burned with IMGBurn v2.5.1.0

    Kind of embarassing for the US affiliate tho? And quite a compliment to Imgburn I might add.

    Device Not Ready (Medium Not Present) error

    If that's a dell then you might try the newer firmware http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R101954&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=132121 You might have to find some older 8x blank media?

    Windows 7 + VIA IDE PCI Card = BSOD

    Windows 7 + VIA IDE PCI Card = BSOD

    You did not indentify it, your link just showed different options for using the via chipset in a controller card, so far I am the one doing the work, I even downloaded the res images. They just told what I have known for years, via makes chipsets, not cards.

    Pardon me, You still can't even identify your controller card and expect me to believe you have a clue about what you are doing. Good Luck With an attitude like that you will go far

    Windows 7 + VIA IDE PCI Card = BSOD

    There are three different cards shown using that chipset http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....;srchInDesc=via The actual brand and model might tell us if the pata hard drive could boot from the card

    C:\Program Files\DVD Flick\imgburn What does the log window say when you open it?
  16. sUBS got a handle on the problem just a few days ago A word of warning, if you scroll down to the middle of this page you will see a list of "approved" forums, where helpers have been trained in the use of Combofix, you will notice the Norton's forum is absent from that list. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix Helpers at the approved forums receive advanced training in the use of Combofix and scripting, likewise the use of Avenger, another dangeous and powerful tool.
  17. My mentor may have misinformed me about Sophos not being able to remove this latest variant http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic242666.html
  18. The author of rootrepeal is said to be working on this issue, might see a fix in a few days, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Sophos will see the rootkit files but cannot remove them, the HJT forums are where removal is being referred. Reload

Close all open programs, scheduling/updating tasks and background processes that might activate during the scan including the screensaver. Temporarily disable your anti-virus and real-time anti-spyware protection. After starting the scan, do not use the computer until the scan has completed. When finished, re-enable your anti-virus/anti-malware (or reboot) and then you can reconnect to the Internet.
  20. The past variants of this TDSS rootkit were controlled by sys files in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers geyekrxxxx.sys Did you run MBAM?
  21. Just ran into this new variant of the rootkit yesterday afternoon It's hooking a lot of processes, it will probably take some time for any self help tool to be updated to deal with this I would just reload
