Cure for "cdrom.sys & Hacktool.Rootkit!inf" av detection

  1. Hi,
    My Norton/AV found me this problem and requires manual removal.

    Earlier today i wondered why i had problems writing Data/DVD disks. It wrote the disk alright, but couldn't open it after wards.
    I understand that the culprits are cdrom.sys within system32\dllcahe and drivers.

    I can easily remove those files manually, as asked, but i suppose those are "system files", so they're needed to work my dvd/rom.
    Any advice will be warmly welcome, asap.

    Thank you
