Avast! has just downloaded its new database, and... (see the picture)
So I got a rootkit alarm about sptd.sys - and it can't be a virus, bucause the same message popped up at my brother too (after avast! updated its database)
Is this a false positive?
A hidden suspicious object (rootkit) has been detected in Your system. This refers to a malicious infection. It is recommended to remove this object immediatly.
File name.....|.....Rootkit name

Sorry if it does not match with the English translation.
