Avast previously reported a rootkit was detected. Repeat scans of the same file does not detect anything anymore. As such, how would I go about determining if there really is a rootkit present?

Further Details:
  • Avast Boot Time Scan finds nothing.
  • Malwarebytes Anti-Malware would not run stating this error:

    An error has occurred. Please report this error code to our support team.
    PROGRAM_ERROR_MISSING_FILE (2, 0, mbamswissarmy.sys)
    The system cannot find the file specified.

  • Reinstalled Malwarebytes with following steps:
  • Updated Malwarebytes and scanned computer with Full Scan: Nothing detected

Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit)
Antivirus: Avast Antivirus v5.1.889 (Free)
