Root Kit : Not What I Thought !
I've been working through a `security fix' with MS.
My first thoughts were, something has sneaked into my PC, and compromised an MS Browser Security Update.
MS are most helpful with `FREE Windows Update' security assistance.
I was emailed a couple of `Fixes' to work through, that involved `MS Clean Boot' mode.
`MS Clean Boot' is used to exclusively enable MS stuff , not Norton products or anybody else's.
Obviously, the word `boot' requires my PC, to power up & down, a few times. The `reboots' were all actioned `OFF-LINE'. I WOULDN'T WORK IN THIS MODE ONLINE.
My Norton 360 never prompted me that, it was being disabled, or that I might be at risk.
A bit surprising, as N360 is all singing & all dancing ?
The culprit turned out to be `Trusteer Rapport' Browser software. The easiest `work around', uninstall. The `Uninstall' worked. The `Windows Update' went straight in.
Rebooted in `Normal Mode'.
Checked everything had come back up. Immediately, `Live Update', OK.
Reinstalled latest `Trusteer Rapport' . Job done !
Still a bit taken aback that my N360 didn't throw a `popup' at me; but then, I did disable N360 myself, and just about everything else !
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME, UNLESS YOU REALLY HAVE THE SKILLS.
