I had a computer infected with Personal AV. I have run ComboFix and Malwarebytes and the machine is up. As a final scan I ran RootRepeal and it shows a driver that I cannot delete. "uqdkcjqp.sys" no path. When I try to delete I receive "Invalid Path"

I have confirmed this entry with SysProt. I show in the Kernel Modules and has no service Name and is Hidden. The Module Base is "BA0A8000" and the Module End is "BA0B7000".

Is this a problem?

Thanks In Advance,

For any hidden driver, the file associated can be wiped, copied or force-deleted so try wiping.

Wipe File overwrites the contents of the file on-disk with nulls (zeroes) but it does not actually delete the file. The file will still exist on the system afterwards but it will contain no meaningful data so it has essentially been neutralized.

None of the above work.

Invalid path! is the result.
