Hi everyone

I'm new to this site so I hope I can follow the rules here. I get the following pop-up message every minute from my recently installed ESET NOD 32 Antivirus:


A Variant of Win32/Rootkit.Kryptik.AA Trojan

Cleaned by deleting - quarantined

I suspect my computer is infected although nothing much happens except that the computer doesn't hold at stand by for too long. I downloaded combofix from this website and ran it but the message keeps poping up. Do I need to format my hard drive in order to clean my computer?

Any Help is Appreciated.
many thanks in advance
