About a week ago the keyboard on my fathers computer stopped working. First we replaced the keyboard, but that wasn't the problem. When i went to check the drivers i found one that doesn't seem like a driver. It says AVAST is the publisher, but Avast isn't all caps and the "driver" is not digitally signed. The "driver" is (C:\Windows\system32\drivers\aswKbd.sys). how would i get rid of it?

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps in the order listed.

aswKbd.sys Keyboard Filter Driver from AVAST Software
http://www.systemlookup.com/search.php?type=filename&client=malwaresearch-chrome&search=aswKbd.sys

It seems like your Avast as been compromised.

I would reinstall the Avast program.

Download the version of this tool for your operating system.
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (64 bit)
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (32 bit)
and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

How is the computer running now?
Wait for further instructions.

It appears that this issue is resolved, therefore I am closing the topic. If that is not the case and you need or wish to continue with this topic, please send me or any Moderator a Personal Message (PM) that you would like this topic re-opened.
