Trying from other computers was successful...so I know the problem is related to just my laptop.
I started up a MalwareBytes scan and when it reached my ATAPI.SYS file...my AVAST AV popped up with a virus alert. AVAST reported that I have a "Win32:Alureon-FR" located in "C":\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\atapi.sys".
I told AVAST to skip the file (for now) and I terminated the MalwareBytes scan.
What is the best sequence to get this file cleaned up?
