Re: Help, possible rootkit

I have ran Process Explorer, Code Stuff Starter but nothing shows up in the
list as using this 25-30% of my CYP.  I also updated and ran PestPatrol,
NortonAV, etc but nothing  is detected which is why I think I have a rootkit
that has patched the kernel and therefore not allowing any of these programs
to detect it.

Anything else ?

First check to see what processes are running.  TaskList is built in but I
would recommend.

Get to know your machine and what processes are running normally.  With
25-30% CPU it should stick out like a sore thumb.

Oh yeah don't run as admin (see )http://blogs.msdn.com/aaron_margosis.

I have noticed that my XP system is behaving like I have a rootkit.

- My mouse is jumpy (it freezes for a second when I move it around the
desktop) and the minimized Taskmanager in the systray shows I have around
25 - 30 % usage, but when I open it, there is no process listed using this
- I did a netstat, fport, openports and none of these show that I have any
odd ports open or any connections established.
- even when I disconnect from the Internet these symptoms do not stop.
stop if I reboot, but then start again.

I have ran VICE, Klister, PatchFinder and RkDetect from rootkit.com and
could not find anything.

Any more suggestions ?
Any more rootkit finding tools for Windows ?
