Exterminate!

With a lot of help from the tech support guys in Denver, the infection on my work PC has been exterminated. A lot of help.

It appears that I managed to acquire a new version of the Tdss rootkit. The article describes a slightly older version. The newer one is no doubt nastier.

But it's cleaned out now. I just have to take care of the collateral damage.

Which is better than rebuilding the whole computer by a long shot.
