Hello all,

I am new to the forums so thank you for providing such a great place for people to gather and help one another.

Ok, I ran panda activescan last night and it found this hacking tool rootkit.a!cme-96 in the system32\rdriv.sys file.

I need to know how to get rid of it and how concerned I should be. There is not too much information on the internet about this rootkit.

BTW ~ I ran hijack this and it does not show up in the results for the HJT log? Does this mean it is not active?

Thank you for any help that you can provide,

~ Skratch

Hi Skratch,

Welcome to BleepingComputer.

Rootkits are bad news. They are designed to be a stealthy as possible and nearly impossible to remove. I recommend following our malware removal post and then posting a HJT log in the HJT forum. The HJT team are very good at removing the bad stuff. One note, just be patient. They are very busy working logs and are all volunteers.

Good luck getting rid of the rootkit. If you have any questions - just ask.
