The Kaspersky TDSSKiller is a good tool to run on an infected computer as it can find different forms of malware and adware that may be lurking in the background of a user's PC which a standard antivirus scan may miss. It is also a good tool when trying to find out if the PC possibly has a rootkit on it.
- First download the TDSSKiller from the manufacturer's website, currently:
- Once downloaded, run the executable file to start the application. Click on the Change Parameters option to add additional options to your scan.
- Click the Start Scan option and allow the scan to completely go through the user's computer.
- Once finished the user should get a screen similar to the one above if no threats or infections are found. If infections were found, you would be given options on what to do with them such as ignore, quarantine, or kill/delete.
