Personally, with rootkits, I would recommend a scorched Earth approach to format and reinstall to be safe.
Well, my mistake. Its not gone after all. When I shut down the PC and turn it on again, the lock icon appears. If I reboot, it does not show up on startup. Again I looked into the notifications area menu and it says Windows Explorer next to it. Except, this time when I click the icon it disappears completely but shows up anytime I shut down and start again. I did countless full scans and found nothing. Should I just ignore it or should I go into safe mode and scan again?
Also, my antivirus keeps picking up a rogue scanner from C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe, any ideas here? I have attached a picture for reference.
