I never heard of a rootkit before. I seem to have one cause by an infected drive I was looking at.
That drive has since been reformatted but on my main system everytime I do a scan with Hitman Pro I get a message telling me I have a Rootkit in C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\dmio.sys. This does not seem to go and Hitman pro always finds it. Yet my other programs such as Spydoctor with AntiVirus, Bell Security Advisor, Norton and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware all tell me I am virus free.
1. What is a Rootkit
2. what is dmio.sys in the windows\system32 directory
3. can I get rid of this rootkit and how?
