after an infection of my XP PC with Security Essentials 2010 a few days ago a scan with Malwarebytes reports an infection of the file windows/system32/drivers/usigh.sys with Rootkit.Agent.

After removal a new scan again reports the same infection.

I tried to delete or rename this file but this is not possible.

Other anti virus programs (Ad-Aware, Antivir) do not detect an infection.

What should I do now? Is there an infection or not?

Best regards,
