Oldies but goodies...golden oldies... anyway...I keep seeing these two pop up on peoples laptops (not just porn addicts, mostly little old ladies in fact.)  and they have been together both times. The reason im posting is that a restore to factory settings did not work in either case. The most noticeable symptom is an inability to update msse. Another is problems installing win updates. These little elegantly crafted minions allow remote cmds,etc etc ad nauseum...PWNED ZOMBIE BOT whatever and are malicious because they hijack some service and WRITE A NEW PARTITION TO YOUR HDD. Crazy. isn't even ntfs or fat32...so when you see windows is done formatting(quick) and reinstalling it simply invites itself to the party again. So yeah, get a disk, write ones and zeros over the hdd and make sure its all partitions. Then install from your disk. If you have time...DBAN (dariks boot and nuke) just to be sure. :) -timosthenes

Once you've seen 2G1C, you can't go back.

Should be noted that any rootkit virus will behave this way.  The easy solution is to adjust your hardrive with a mallet.

I mean delete the offending partition, and using a anti-virus scan tool from a usb or cd boot you can then clean the drive and
even fix the boot partition.
