Not all hidden components detected by ARKs are malicious. It is normal for a Firewall, some Anti-virus and Anti-malware software (ProcessGuard, Prevx1, AVG AS), sandboxes, virtual machines and Host based Intrusion Prevention Systems (HIPS) to hook into the OS kernal/SSDT in order to protect your system. SSDT (System Service Descriptor Table) is a table that stores addresses of functions that are used by Windows. Both Legitimate programs and rootkits can hook into and alter this table. You should not be alarmed if you see any hidden entries created by legitimate programs after performing a scan.
I believe those hidden files are related to avast anti-virus (C:\Windows\SysNative\drivers\aswSnx.sys). Most references I found are on Finnish, German or Italian forums where users have avast installed but it is mentioned as an avast file at Widlers Security forums.
What specific issues are you having that require a request for assistance with malware removal? Please describe any problem(s) in detail as they could provide a clue as to whether your issues are malware related or not.
