anti rootkit avg messages

Recommended Posts

Sorry not a computer person so if you need more info let me know

After scanning with avg free 2013 detected 5 anti rootkits

I tried putting these in sites to see if they were false positives but when I open the direction the .sys file doesnt exist.

AVG says to delete the files I need to reboot but on the next scan they are back.

Please help.... Does this mean someone is accessing my laptop or is it a AVG error

files appear like this

"";"pci.sys, hooked import ntoskrnl.exe IoDetachDevice -> spxr.sys +0x625DC, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\spxr.sys";"Infected"

"";"pci.sys, hooked import ntoskrnl.exe IoAttachDeviceToDeviceStack -> spxr.sys +0x62650, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\spxr.sys";"Infected"

"";"Inline hook ataport.SYS DllUnload -> spxr.sys +0x5E360, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\spxr.sys";"Infected"

"";"atapi.sys, hooked import ataport.SYS AtaPortReadPortUchar -> spxr.sys +0x2D224, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\spxr.sys";"Infected"

"";"atapi.sys, hooked import ataport.SYS AtaPortReadPortBufferUshort -> spxr.sys +0x2D35C, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\spxr.sys";"Infected"

these 5 files have changed names from when they were detected the first time

"";"pci.sys, hooked import ntoskrnl.exe IoDetachDevice -> spds.sys +0x625DC, C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\spds.sys";"Secured"

changing from spds.sys to spxr.sys

what is the best way to delete a rootkit if I have one, how can i detect if I do really have one?

Thankyou for any help or advice in advance
