Make sure, that there is no internet connection possible, while you use that tools to remove the rootkit. Otherwise, it still downloads itself again and you are still at the beginning.
Best is to start windows in safe mode, with no internet connection and then run e.g. malwarebytes.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

still the same result. Evidently malwarebytes is not removing it and kapersky does not recognize that it is there?

same results with hijack this. trying another download this AM.

will uninstalling everything and reinstalling all software help? I have backup--will start over if need be.

What does Malwarebyte's Antimalware report ?
There are a few anti root kit solutions , So help us out here , perhaps you could post the MBAM log .

PS. uninstalling software programs will not help , the root kit is in the operating system .

I also had Rootkit.TDSS, something about SKYNET. Malwarebytes detected it but could not remove it. I tried Spyware Doctor and it did the trick. No more problems.

I seem to be clear now--did spyware doctor earlier and nothing showing on scan. I will keep these suggestions if I need in the future. Thank you all for your help!
