We had a windows XP machine that became infected with a Rogue Antivirus 2011. Malwarebytes, and Rogue Killer were used, and upon scanning with Rogue Killer the Zero Access Root Kit was identified. Malwarebytes did find rogue av and removed as well. I tried using Kaspersky's Root Kit removal tool, which found 2 threats and removed them, but Rogue Killer continued to identify Zero Access after subsequent scans. I used combofix last, which identified a root kit, and cleaned it. Now rogue killer does not show any infections, with the exception of one line that says: "Error Reading LL2 MBR!"

I am attaching my combo fix log and hijack this log. If anyone has a moment, I would greatly appreciate it if you could look over them. Both logs are from post scan with combofix. I just want to make sure that if any further action is required, I take it. Thank you for your time.
