Sysaudio.sys rootkit found

Recommended Posts


Malwarebytes keeps finding a rootkit agent in C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysaudio.sys (Rootkit.Agent) . It quarantines and deletes it yet when I run it again the next evening it appears again ?

I am running AVG8 and Zone Alarm Pro..Neither of them find it...

Hope this is an easy fix.

Thanks for your time and help

It found the same file on my computer too. I haven't removed it yet because I want to make sure that it wasn't a mistake. Also, I wanted to find out what problems I could expect if I were to remove it.

It seems the original file would need to be replaced. Where would I go or how would I replace it on a WinXP Home SP2 operating system?
