Okay, so I scan my laptop with Malwarebytes daily. Now yesterday, I bought a Dimm of 4 GB of RAM yesterday from a friend and installed it on my laptop. It started slow and then I started a Malwarebytes scan and my PC's screen went off and it wouldn't respond. Then I restarted it and after 5 minutes, I got a BSOD. I opened up the cover and got the RAM out, then everything was fine again. So I ran another scan and found nothing. Great c:. Now, I turned it off and today, I put the Dimm back in cause I wanted to see why didn't it work and it was okay, but I found that the RAM must be faulty and it would probably cause more issues in the future, so I removed it. I turned my computer back on and ran a scan to find that a file called portcls.sys was an Unknown.Rootkit.Driver (located in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\drivers\portcls.sys). Scan finished, I removed it, everything okay. I also ran Malware-Bytes Anti-Rootkit and found nothing. Now I read that portcls.sys works with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO, so I want to know if this is just a false positive or if the file was corrupted and detected it as an Unknown.Rootkit.Driver or what was it. (Like I said before I run daily scans, I've never had any sort of serious infection on my computer, and I also have Avast! Free Antivirus since I don't have the PRO version of MBAM. I'm kind of paranoic with virus infections and I really hate them..).

Very sorry for the delay. We've simply been overrun with requests for help and have not been able to get to everyone requesting help in a timely manner.

Now that we're finally getting our head a bit above water again I've been going back to review old missed requests. If you do still need help please let me know.

Thank you
