These programs should make it past the virus for a download, as they are all relatively unknown. Just wondering if anyone else was doing something similar....

I've run every virus and malware software known to man.... It is not messing with the windows dns cache or the hosts file as is typically the case with hijacks. Thanks to this forum, I could solve that invasion on my laptop, what I would call the Update Blocker Super Rootkit Virus. Ran (microtrend housecall), (malwarebytes-anti-malware), and (spybot). Got the latest (AVG 8.0) Trojan Remover worked for me, too. I don't know why that link worked when other wouldn't, maybe because the AV is buried in the link through google? Just click it and hit the first download button and run the program. but the backup process is interrupted and shuts down every time. this is the first problem that I've been unable to solve in years.

(HJT) but when I click on the link I only get an error. This does most likely mean that there is an actively executing program doing the hijack, or a replaced library to which a program is making calls.. Like Dav the culprit for me seems to be: gaoopdxklowrct.sys" and the Reg key was "HKLM\SYSTEM\CURRENT CONTROL SET\ Services\gaopdxserv.sys" . Coat (or somebody else here), since you seem more technically savvy, could you explain how this can occur: What network layer is compromised when this happens ? my computer has also been blocked for over a week now. I never dreamed that I'd be crippled to this extent. i was able to back up in small sizes by avoiding the spots that cause a hang up ... I finally was able to cure my PCs from this update blocker virus or whatever it was.
- C:\PROGRA~1\AVG\AVG8\O23 - Service: AVG Free8 Watch Dog (avg8wd) - AVG Technologies CZ, s.r.o. ipconfig /displaydns listed only two common correct entries in the dns cache.

The windows updater page redicts to a "page no found", everything else just gives some sort of "failed to connect" message. This malware is intercepting windows dns resolution at the highest levels. I ran (AVG anti-rootkit) and that paved the way for me to go get all the updates.
