    As I mentioned in a message I posted earlier this week regarding the same rootkit, when you've finished running all of the standard programs to eliminate the rootkit (also with viruses, trojans, whatever) I'd recommend wiping the free space and file slacks on your hard drive, just to be sure it's gone. Why, you might ask? Several years ago a friend of mine and I were talking about viruses and such and I postulated to him that wouldn't it make sense for a malware author to create a bug that would not be written in any Windows directory, but instead be written to the "unused" portion of the hard drive where it would not be detected and could not in a standard sense be removed. He said, "Naw, that wouldn't happen!" I swear to you that not more than a week later his hard drive was wiped out by the Ravage virus, which turned out to be a virus that, you guessed it, wrote itself to the unused portion of the hard drive while it waited to be activated. Even though he and I shared files via floppies--and I found one of his floppies to be infected with Ravage--my system was clean as I have always performed a wipe of the free space at least once a week to prevent just such an occurrence. At any rate, I recommend getting yourself a wiping tool and put it to use as part of your arsenal against viruses and all other forms of malware. fyigmo
