Hi, im useing the paid avg version. and i just did a scan and removed a few small viruses but i still have annoying rootkit i cant find..its called C:Winows/System32/drivers/Eaglex64.sys
when i try to remove it. it keeps giving me access denied. does anyone know a fast simple way to get rid of it? because i dont know alot about computers. just basics.

C:Winows/System32/drivers/Eaglex64.sys

I already tried Kaspersky TDSSkiller. it didnt ven detect it. any ideas?

This forum does not recognize Uniblue registry booster as a legitimate malware or AV program.

In most cases it harms your computer more than it fixes anything.

booster. so i thought were telling me to download and try that ?

NO, I was telling you that Eaglex64.sys was NOT a rootkit.

You should not click on ADs that might appear on web pages unless you know the product.

No way should you use any Uniblue software.

You did not click on the link that he gave it goes to a page that looks like this... and says no need to remove the item you are worried about.

AVG often gives false positives.
