Default Re: help, please -- malware: rootkit???

Just did a search on google about that file:

Source: RootKit: System modification C:\\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\sfloppy.sys? - Yahoo!7 Answers

Quote:
D'ont panic guys.... I got same report on some computers that I am serviceing and yes, some of you are wright because it's a false alarm.... And yes, this is directly linked to the last update that AVAST performed. I checked sfloppy.sys and is the same as Microsoft intended to be and unchanged. Funny thing is that if you choose to delete it nothing changes......).... Well d'ont be too hursh on AVAST this can happen to even better antivirus software ! I am sure that this will disapear as soon as another update will be performed.... D'ont worry you don't have a rootkit into the operatin system !

Yeah it looks like a false positive.

Do you have a program called malwarebytes? Its free like avast. I use the two in tandem once a week to make sure my pc stays uninfected.
