How to completely clear detected rootkit?
« on: September 14, 2022, 05:53:10 am »
After getting my PC back from a repair shop I heard that the owner of the shop was known to install rootkits on machines that he worked on. Rogue Killer found this (see attachment). I allowed RogueKiller to delete the files and daily scans since haven't reported back anything else. I still seem to have the .exe that he used to install it on my PC. Is there a way to clear my machine of this and other similar files safely, without accidentally reinstalling the rootkit?

The detection was about a month ago. The furthest back the reports go is to the 2nd of this month. I don't recall deleting any though, maybe reports are cleared after updating.

Hi,

Latest scans didn't detect anything. Your computer is clean.
The GPU-Z-v2 detection is related to a temporary driver used by GPU-Z and not linked to any kind of rootkit.

Regards.
