I have just preformed a scan on my computer and discovered a rootkit at the following location

c:\windows\system32\drivers\astm101o.sys

I was going to remove it but AVG free rootkit tool said to be very sure about what i was about to do before i did it, so here i am asking the question.

Is it wise to remove this or am i about to cripple my computer?

Can't find anything in Google to compare it.Can you quarantine it.Or do you have to delete it.
