REMOVE Rootkit.Win32.TDSS.d

Specs: Windows XP
I recently was surfing the web when a virus popup warned me that my machine was infected, but it wasn't my Antivirus or Spyware detector that popped up!! Before I could even think about it I had already clicked "delete" and scan for virus, but. Programs I tried to launch were all reported infected, (later I read on some AV sites that is a false report from AV Soft) and I couldn't remove get rid of the thing.
Several programs reported the AVSoft Cleaned but it allways came back in a day or so. It was a spoofed antivirus program called AV Soft that now has control of my machine, So I figured it might be a RootKit type in some hidden sector or some obscure service running. Although even after I removed the AV Soft entries and used Microsofts Malware Remover, as well as SuperAntispyware and PCTools spyware remover it still persisted.
Later that night I tried a scan with Kaspersky Removal Tool and it flashed a "failed to Delete" message at me then a moment later asked to use an enhanced removal technique that required a reboot. I answered yes to the later and after the reboot the %&@#& thing was gone! Microsnots!
One out of five Removal Tools worked!! Not MS, not PCTOOLS, not Superantispyware....Kaspersky!

It's simply because Kaspersky pwns all. It's one of the only things that saved my arse when I myself was DNS hijacked two years ago (this was before I knew what this virus was).

You just got lucky. There are better removal tools than you listed which would have removed the problem. You just didn't try them.
Don't be misled with a paid AV, they are not always best.
