    Got Vista Security 2012

    Hi,

    Recently I got a fake anti-virus Vista Security 2012. Follow one of the thread at this forum, I was able to remove it by doing system restore to a previous time. The thing is I still suspect that there's hidden rootkit still remains somewhere on the computer. Is there a way to test/remove any hidden rootkit? I have tried TDSSKiller but it returns as "no threat found". I also run malwarebyte but the result is the same.

    You got lucky then, sometimes the automated instruction and free tools are unable to remove that and you would need Expert one on one assistance. If you experience more issue, put up a post for Jacee to assist you with .
