I am on my moms computer right now.  She wanted me to run her AVG for her because she accidentally clicked a link and I wanted to make sure nothing was wrong on the laptop.  After scanning, I found a warning from AVG suggesting that there was a new driver rootkit.  I looked on Google and found you guys at this specific link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/195169/avg-found-hidden-driver/


I did what Buda suggested and downloaded that Malware program.  In doing so, it found nothing malicious on her laptop lol.  So now what do I do?  It should also be mentioned I restarted the laptop after AVG supposedly removed the virus (or whatever it is).  It's still there, but for some reason MalwareByte is not finding it.  What else can I do?


She has a laptop

Windows 7 

AVG is updated to the newest version

MalwareBytes is updated as well


The exact details were: 


"";"Hidden driver, \Device\mfeavfk01.sys";"Infected"

Ah, please help.  I have no idea how else to remove this.  Thanks.

Upload the file here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/ for security check.

It looks like false positive to me. Not a stranger to AVG :)
