First post, need help with possible malicious rootkit removal.

Win XP Pro SP2

Infected with Antimalware Doctor Friday afternoon.
Ran Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware - got rid of most everything except:

Repeated scans report:
"C:\Windows\system32\drivers\znyrb.sys (Trojan.Rootkit) -> Delete on reboot"
Reboot system and re-run scan, returns same result

Ran Sophos ARK
Unknown hidden file - "C:\Windows\system32\drivers\znyrb.sys"
Removable - Yes (but clean up not recommended for this file)

How to proceed?

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
