In the process of updating AVG, the system got infected with the rdriv.sys Trojan.
I attempted to repair but succeeded only to keep rdriv.sys from coming back when I stay in Safe Mode.
A system check found the following:
Spybot S & D: Anti-virus and firewall disabled.
WindowsSp2 Update disabled.
S & D cleaned out all malware, except WindowsSp2 Update. Attempted to clean it out of the registry- did not work.
Also elimnated rdriv.sys entry in the registry.
The infection persists.
Highjacker cannot find the file rdriv.sys.
I do not want to go on the Internet with this machine until the offending file is removed.
My main machine uses OS Linux/Linspire.
Therefore, any and all remedies will have to be transferred from one machine to the other - without going over the Net.
There is no network installed.
Any suggestions, please??
