    I just finished running the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool on PC I suspected of some malware/bot activity. During the scan, within the first few moment, the count of infected files climbed to over 200, but when the scan finished, the summary screen told me that no infections were found. Has anyone encountered similar issues with the MSRT before? Does anyone know of any malware that can intercept and modify the results the MSRT shows on screen (and in the log)?

    I've run numerous anti-malware tools on the suspect box and, apart from one "bad cookie" spotted by HouseCall and some suspect DNS queries (one each weekday for about 5 days) spotted by Trend's RUBotted, I can't find any infections.

    Am I going nuts? Could this be an unknown rootkit? I've tried Rootkit Revealer and other tools.

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    Perhaps the "infections" were not serious - tracking cookies, for instance.

    Try the free version of Malwarebytes antiMalware - it's currently rated as one of the best malware scanners.
