Cannot remove Rootkit.Agent

Unread postby flyingmojo » June 6th, 2010, 10:24 pm


Both my AntiVir and my MB AntiMalware programs have detected Rootkit.Agent, but neither of them can get rid of them. The AntiMalware asks to restart the computer in order to get rid of it on reboot, but when it's booted back up, I did another scan and it's still there. My AntiVir also says that it's moved it, but upon another scan, it's still there!

Here's the most recent log from AntiMalware
