Concerned I have a rootkit


Recommended Posts

I have stupidly run a suspect executable file, which then popped up with some jumbled characters and contained "c:\windows\system32\drivers".

This has concerned me that it has edited files and installed a RootKit though scans with Malwarebytes and others are showing nothing.

How can I be sure there is no infection?
