On Friday, October 25, 2013Kaspersky Lab has released anti-virus databases, which was mistakenly added detection system file tcpip.sys. This anti-virus databases detected as a malicious file tcpip.sys in Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0 for Windows Workstations running under Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (32-bit), put the file in Quarantine and delete the registry keys that refer to the file.

 

This happened to our company over the weekend. Here's all the information -> http://support.kaspersky.com/tcpip
