I found a Root Kit on my computer using AVG's free Root Kit detector that my Trend Micro missed. TM was working as the server and covering all of the client computers.
The Root Kit was in the drivers folder of System 32 and was quarantined. Everytime, I chose to delete it, it would just reboot it and say it got rid of it but would just show another one in the same location only named differently by one letter.
So, is this something I should worry about? How do I get rid of it permanently? It just adds a new number to the file which is a sys file. Not sure if I could even delete it.
I have run GMER after AVG, and it doesn't seem to find it.
