I recently had an ATAPI.SYS rootkit on my laptop which I got cleared off through BC. Yesterday when I opened my laptop, i got this message "Windows needs to install driver software for your ATA Device. I wanted to know if this has something to do with ATAPI.SYS rootkit. I've attached the screen shot of the message here.... Please help

Opening .doc files from unknown computer is risky, so I suggest, you post a screenshot as regular image file.

I'm not able to paste it here on the reply... How can I do that? Is there any other way for me to post the screenshot?

It looks like legit Windows message, so you should allow installation.

You didn't say.

If you don't have any current issues, leave your computer alone.
