    If it was in a non-windows folder, let AVG deal with it.

    How do I know if it is in a non-windows folder. The information I have from AVG is:

    Detection Name: Corrupted Section ntoskrnl.exe(PAGE)RtlQueryAtomInAtomTable+0x585, size 4 bytes

    Object Name - Unknown

    Object type - file

    SDK type - rootkit

    Result - object is hidden

    To be sure you get correct info, you should contact AVG forums, and let their removal pros diagnose your scan results. They can provide you with additional tools to run, so they can look deeper into your system. Chances are this was a false positive.
