Hi, I am new to these forums. I found them while doing a search to remove the hacktool.rootkit virus which I am halfway there with. I could do with some help. Norton first started telling me there was a virus in the following file C:\Documents and settings\gav\msdirectx.sys Through looking about on the internet I found out that using a hex editor to edit the .exe in the file stops the virus running correctly so I could gain access to the internet again. I have now downloaded and run hijack this and have pasted the results from the scan below. Could anyone help me please to finish of this nasty little virus as I'm not too sure what to do now and I don't want to go messing about with the registry myself.
