Hello, i notived my laptop has two suspect files in the windows system32 folder (currently not flagged by Emisoft/Bitdefender) i used google and came across a thread with those two exact files saying its a TDSS Rootkit..


  • C:\Windows\system32\7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-0.C7483456-A289-439d-8115-601632D005A0
  • C:\Windows\system32\7B296FB0-376B-497e-B012-9C450E1B7327-5P-1.C7483456-A289-439d-8115-601632D005A0

source: http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/vista-enterprise-desktop/beware-the-tdss-rootkit-removal-tool/


i scanned my laptop using FRST and also noticed a driver Fanio.sys is causing alot of system errors, if possible i'd like the driver to be restored to his original state i tryed to do it myself with no success


One of the Error log from Fanio.sys (message is in french)


  Date: 2015-08-30 18:52:38.711
  Description: Windows ne peut pas vérifier l’intégrité d’image du fichier \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Windows\System32\drivers\fanio.sys, car le fichier à hacher est introuvable sur le système. Une modification matérielle ou logicielle récente a peut-être installé un fichier incorrectement signé ou endommagé ou il s’agit éventuellement d’un logiciel malveillant d’une source inconnue.
Thank you in advance Kevin

Neither of those are Malware and they certainly are not part of the TDSS/TDL2 RootKit. Both are part of the Windows Licensing System and must never be deleted.

Copy the below code to Notepad; Save As fixlist.txt to your Desktop.

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer: Restriction de Stratégie <======= ATTENTION
HKU\.DEFAULT\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer: Restriction de Stratégie <======= ATTENTION
HKU\S-1-5-21-3408532909-310041769-994278239-1000\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer: Restriction de Stratégie <======= ATTENTION
AlternateDataStreams: C:\ProgramData\TEMP:07BF512B
Close Notepad.

NOTE: It's important that both files, FRST64 and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on that particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system

Run FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.

If the tool needed a restart please make sure you let the system to restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.

The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt). Attach it to your reply.

Note: If the tool warns you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.
