Boot.Tidserv infection

Recommended Posts

An attorney at the law firm I work at brought emailed our help desk saying his laptop would not boot up properly. I was unable to boot into safe mode with the problem system. I tried doing a repair of Windows XP Service Pack 3 and at first that seemed to fix the issue. However, I then began to realize the culprit was a boot.tidserv attached to a svchost.exe in c:\windows\system32. Using a Symantec Endpoint protection Boot disk I got into was able to replace the svchost.exe file. Unfortunately, that has not solved the issue. Every time I connect the laptop to a network connection I get a message from Symantec saying it is blocking an attack from an outside IP address. I need to get this fixed soon. If any one can help me or at least point me in the right direction that would be awesome. I'm including the manual disinfection report as well. Thanks!
