I did, showed nothing......but AVG called it , "IRP hook,\Driver\atapi DriverStartIo-> 0x8A73E2FB" without the quotes. AVG cannot remove it because it is a hidden rootkit.

✔ Best Answer
I downloaded and ran TDSS Killer and deleted a BUNCH of malware and viruses it found. So far so good! Tried "Hitman" but it said my trial had expired (I downloaded it back in January). Let's hope all stays well now. Thanks RMT2 for replying.
