Hacktool.Rootkit pest removal

  1. Hello!
    I have a slight problem with this "hacktool.rootkit" trojan. It's not a major problem (or I would like to think so) because the only symptom I get is every time I'm entering any of my drives, the Norton Antivirus pops up a window telling me that a 'high risk' virus was found and removed. Still, I'd very much like to know how to get rid of this problem.
    Since HijackThis advises untrained users to show its logfile to some trained professional, I'd like to ask for help with mine (attachment) - I myself cannot really tell what the hell's wrong, not to mention what to do next.
    Thank you for any words of support.

    nah, if this had worked, I wouldn't be here in the first place. I read some more posts and decided - since I was particularly short on time - to nuke the system. but thanks anyway.
