Hey guys! I'm cleaning a computer for a buddy of mine and he left it in my possession for a couple days. I've noticed a TON of malware, trojans, adware, etc. I successfully removed a whole bunch of adware with ADWCleaner. Then I found about 100 infected objects with Malwarebytes. I next ran a quick scan with Hitman Pro and found 2 trojans and 1 piece of malware. After that, I ran TDSSKiller and removed a MBR rootkit (thankfully that's gone!) For some final touches I flushed the DNS, fixed hosts, etc and wanted to try out JRT. I downloaded it and when I try to run it, a DOS window appears and quickly disappears. I disabled all anti-virus software but for the life of me, I can't figure out what the problem is! And if you have any suggestions to help me make this machine squeaky clean, I'm definitely open for suggestions! Thanks guys!
