I first suspected that something was wrong when I would click on a link, and I would be redirected to a different website. I did some research, and I read about some Google Redirect Virus. I don't know if that is what I have because lately I haven't been redirected to other sites.
What's affected is my browser (Firefox).. When I type the vertical dash line will freeze periodically, and if I type while it is frozen, the words that I type, even though they're correct, will appear like complete gibberish.
I did scans with Norton, and did a rootkit scan. It finds something with the name rikvm_C6F9094.sys. I tried to find it in the computer by searching, but it's not there. Norton says that it removes it, and it appears that for a moment the computer works. But then when I run a scan again, the same file shows up.
I downloaded Comodo, but it didn't find anything.
What is this rikvm file, and how do I delete it? I just bought this great laptop for school, and I desperately need it to work properly!
ALSO, since the computer is new, I decided to restart the computer from factory condition, and the problem has persisted regardless.
