Hi

I am unable to switch on the antivirus section of my PCGuard downloaded from Virgin Media. When I run the diagnostic it says the reason it fails is C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\klif.sys is not found, when I google this it says something about trojan viruses, is the case and what should I do next?

klif.sys can be related to Kaspersky anti-virus - see here.

Determining whether a file is malware or a legitimate process sometimes depends on the location (path) it is running from. One of the ways that malware tries to hide is to give itself the same name as a critical system file. However, it then places itself in a different location (folder) than where the legitimate file resides and runs from there. Do you now or have you ever had a Kaspersky product installed on your system?
