My pc is infected with RAT which remains after low level format and BIOS flashing.
I've also tried to scan with those boot AV programs,but with no success :
-Kaspersky
-Nod32
And it seems it's not being detected by any AV/Firewall.
What to do guys?
Any help will be hightly appreciated. :)

Doing a low level format of your drive and re-flashing the BIOS always works. If it is the only drive in your system then I would tend to think that you may have an issue with your installation media of your operating system. If you have more than one drive, the malware is probably on those additional drives as well.

If there is a virus that formating the bios and drivers at once dosnt work it's time to rebuild. It's at a level of you have no idea if wormed into the cpu log files the gpu log files or anything else so rebuilding is the only option is to rebuild. Stay of the dark web this won't happen its almost impossible to get these viruses unless doing things you shouldn't. It's almost 96% of the time a government of some sort tracking your system because your doing highly suspicious <Mod Edit>.... unless you have info on there someone really wants.

Why do you think you have it?
Someone is just controling my pc :


-open random browser pages


-restart my pc


-eject my dvd writer


-some of my accounts were compromised


-pc is so slower at moments


-sometimes just close my games when i play


-someone installs programs without i even notice etv etc

And i think im infected with some nasty bootkit.
I also have only 1 HDD on my pc.

Do you have an extra keyboard and mouse on hand? New?

I had an issue at one point with a keyboard that I tried to clean and ended up having an issue with the "board/traces/contact points" inside and it would do all manner of random things.

Which specific release and what specific site?

It's extremely unlikely (to the point that it's laughable) that you have a Linux distribution harboring a virus or trojan or other malware unless this was obtained from a questionable source.
I was on Windows 10 before i post here and then installed the Linux.
I'm starting to think that im infected with some kind of UEFI virus...

Again this only happens if you have info someone one wants and you let leak you have or you did something you shouldn't have on a government site and they are no tracking your system files..... or faulty hardware. Causing what seems to be a uefi virus. So at this point I'm not really going to help on this one all I can say best of wishes to get rid of it without rebuilding a new system in hole because uefi virus will worm its way into every bios of the system gpu cpu ram cache everything and and thing it can find to hide will be infected.

UEFI virus' have been almost unheard of for over 5 years because of advances in system firmware protection. Unless your system is extremely old, it is highly unlikely that you have would been specifically targeted.

As per ex-bubblehead question - Which specific release and specific site did you download the Linux ISO from?
