Hi

I have XP S.P.3.

I just did a rootkit scan with AVG 2011 (1st time ever) and it came up with the following -
AVG 2011 anti-virus rootkit scan results
- NOT REMOVED
File
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\sfsync02.sys"
Infection
IRP hook, \Driver\atapi IRP_MJ_INTERNAL_DEVICE_CONTROL -> sfsync02.sys +0xD60" (this was all on 1 line)

Result
"Object is hidden"
What should I do - delete it???
