  1. Hi, I joined these forums when I saw how you kindly helped other users with their problems, and i thought that maybe somebody could help me with my problem.
    I first noticed when i tried to run C&C Renegade, a game, and I recieved first this message from Renegade, :"Error: loader couldn't initialize service!" , and then the following message from Norton Antivirus 2005, which I use.
    "Virus Alert
    X High Risk
    Norton Antivirus has detected a virus on your computer.
    Object Name: C:\WINDOWS\System32\SVKP.sys
    Virus Name: Hacktool.Rootkit
    Action Taken: Unable to repair this file."


    Straight after I closed this window, it was followed by another message:
    "Virus Alert
    X High Risk
    Norton Antivirus has detected a virus on your computer.
    Object Name: C:\WINDOWS\System32\SVKP.sys
    Virus Name: Hacktool.Rootkit
    Action Taken: Access to the file was denied."


    Whenever I run Renegade, the same process happens. I have tried taking all the steps to show all hidden files, but I cannot find it, manually or by search. Furthermore, when I ran a Norton Antivirus Search, after having updated virus definitions, It came up with no results, but it still has the same message when I run Renegade. I have since installed Hijack This, and tried a few of the tutorials here, and I cant find any of the files on the HJT log that match the oens on the tutorials. Here is my HJT log:
    Please, please help.

    I have no other advice for Hacktool. Search the web for more.

    Run HJT in safe mode and let it fix:
