Since you do not have a conflicting antivirus installed download and install the one I linked to above. It is free and does a good job.

Ran the mbar. It identified four rootkit issues. But it could not resolve them because the system crashed each time. I even tried doing one rootkit at a time. But no go. Plenty of memory dump each time and it took Ccleaner about 10 minutes each time to clear the dump.

@amkeew, Not really sure why you are on this thread. If you are having a problem please start you own topic.

amkeew MBAR is still in Beta format, best to use SAS at present and tell MBAM about the issue so they can fix it.

They maybe tracking cookies, check when it's finished by clicking on the + symbol inside a box next to the 'issues'.

So does that mean yesterday they didn't get rid of them ? I also ran Microsoft security essentials and that didn't detect anything .

Tracking cookies aren't harmful, they are just cookies that get used by websites for advertising purposes and log in sessions things like that. Nothing to worry about.

It's when it appears in Red and says things like Critical.Hijacker.blah blah, that's when you worry :)
