Hi guys!

Something called Fast Windows Antivirus was sprung on me yesterday. I closed it pretty quickly and looked it up and apparently it's some sort of malware thing. So I downloaded a trial version on AVG (should have done it earlier, I know), it spent 10 hours doing a full computer scan and found nothing wrong, but then I did an Anti-Rootkit scan and it turned up the following:

File: C:\WINDOWS\system32\Drivers\uphcleanhlp.sys
Infection: Service function NtUnloadKey hook -> uphcleanhlp.sys +0x6D0
Result: Object is hidden

I've tried to remove it with AVG, but it doesn't seem to be able to.

So any help you guys can give me on figuring out whether this thing needs removing and, if so, how to remove it would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance!

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic and a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get.
