rootkit system32\DRIVERS\WUDFRd.sys

Postby moeilijk » Sun Feb 13, 2011 1:53 pm

AVG found rootkit and put this on a list. I get the option to remove it or leave it. What shall I do? Does remove mean he is going to remove this rootkit or is he going to delete WUDFRd.sys?


BTW it's windows 7, AVG 90.872

Take note of the exact file location and name, then allow AVG to remove it and reboot. If there is a problem you can boot to Safe Mode and restore the file.

Hi, I'm still alive and so is my pc! I contacted AVG directly and they advised me to do nothing. AVG scan doesn't report it anymore either so I think it was a glitch.
thanks for your help
