Have you tried scanning with Mcafee in safe mode? You can also try a online scan Here . The infection should not interfere with the scan.

James -try Secured2K's boot disk.

Update the dats then when you boot- make sure you check the use dats from cd option before scanning (as these are the ones you have updated)

I too am dealing with the same trojan and currently running the scan.

yes but it did not find the virus.I have also scaned online as u found 6 threat
i can post the summary of scan but dont know how to attach it here.

RE: NOTOSKRNL-HOOK virus stopped opening .exe help

James- did you download and create the boot disk as suggested in my previous post?

The infection of NTOSKRNL-HOOK I had on a users machine was removed using Secured2K's boot CD.

The scan of mine in safe mode did not clean all the infected files and was still present.

I suggest you run the boot cd to clean the machine



P.S. - just paste the txt into the post

I'm no expert but you can probably copy your files to an external drive (as long as you're willing to risk corrupting that as well) even if you can't run programs. I had a similar problem and did have to re-format but I had no trouble copying the important word documents, etc to an external drive beforehand.

Closing this thread as the OP is receiving help at one of the security forums.
