Norton is telling me I have a Trojan called Tidserv that requires manual extraction. Unfortunately Norton's suggested fix doesn't work. It tells me to download and use FixTDSS, but when I try and use then it restarts my computer, and when i log back in it says it encounters and error and doesn't scan anything. From reading other posts I saw that I should use this tdsskiller program, but it doesn't find anything.

My browser keeps getting redirected whenever I use search engines, when I go to certain websites using Firefox it causes me to go to some cellphone version of them. I also get warnings that Tojan.Gen.2 is getting blocked all the time, maybe every 10-20 minutes. It also causes PING.EXE to start up on its own and suck up all of my processing power about once a minute, only while I'm using an internet browser I think. I've deleted PING.EXE because I couldn't stand it anymore, even though Norton and Malware Bytes scans said there was nothing wrong with it. But when I try and change users my computer screen goes black and just freezes while the hard drive or somethign works like mad. And when I restart it, it gives me a blue error screen when I try and reboot forcing me to reset again, and then it does this hard drive fixing thing that forces me to go back to a previous hard drive state when PING.EXE is back.

Also, I can't start Window's Firewall. If I try to in the control panel it says I run into error code 0x8007042c. If I try to in the 'local services' thing it says i hit error 1068: The dependency service of group failed to start. it look at its dependencies, there were 2; the base Filtering Engine, which was in the 'local service' thing and was on, and the other was the "Windows Firewall Authorization Driver", and I have no idea where that is.

This whole situation is ridiculously frustrating, I want to kill whoever made this retarded virus.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Hi there lets see what you have

Download OTL to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Select All Users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in
    C:\Windows\assembly\tmp\U\*.* /s
  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs


Download aswMBR.exe ( 1.8mb ) to your desktop.
Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it Click the "Scan" button to start scan
