Hello.

  • Download combofix from here
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:

    * Tools->Options->Main tab
    * Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".

    2. During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:





    3. It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.
    4. Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.
    5. Close any open browsers.
    6. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

  • We need to disable your local AV (Anti-virus) before running Combofix.
  • See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for how to disable your AV.
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe.
  • Follow the prompts. NOTE:
  • ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed.
    ***It's strongly recommended to have the Recovery Console installed before doing any malware removal.***

    **Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will automatically proceed with its scan.


  • The Recovery Console provides a recovery/repair mode should a problem occur during a Combofix run.



  • Allow ComboFix to download the Recovery Console.
  • Accept the End-User License Agreement.
  • The Recovery Console will be installed.
  • You will then get this next prompt that asks if you want to continue the malware scan, select yes



  • Allow combofix to run
  • Post C:\combofix.txt back here.

    Note:
    Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.

Hello.

I see that you are running BitTorrent and Limewire.
P2P(Peer to peer) applications are designed to help you easily share and distribute files between you and a group of people. But they can also be used to distribute malware, and thus are not considered safe.
The removal of these programs is optional, but highly recommended.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and remove the following programs.

    Ask Toolbar

The computer is running normally now and automatic updates are working again. Was the rootkit blocking updates? What are the security implications? Was there a keylogger? Should passwords be changed?

The computer belongs to a family member who uses BitTorrent occasionally but is unaware that limelight is present on the computer. How is it listed in the add/remove programs list. I know that DNA is BitTorrent. Will the add/remove program completely remove them?

The family member in question mainly uses YouTube but does download free software and videos. Do you have any tips on which sites should be avoided. Up to now Malwarebytes anti-malware was sufficient to remove malware up to now but rootkits are more serious.

Thank you very much for all your efforts in getting the computer clean again. Your promptness and efficiency are very much appreciated and I commend you for this great service. I am now a big supporter of this site; hopefully I won't have to use too often!

Sorry, I can't say anything about really say which is safe, anything you download nowadays could be infected.

I think it was a rootkit, looks more like an old vundo rootkit though. Remove any leftover DNA/BitTorrent folders to remove the program.
