Rootkit infection

Today I got a rootkit infection and can't get rid of it. I have used avast and super antispyware to detect it and delete it but whenever I do that it shows up when I scan it again. I also tried TDSS Killer which can't find it for some reason, someone help me. The infected file is C:/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/sfloppy.sys if that helps.

Re: Rootkit infection

I notice that avast detected it incorrectly was it the 1 that said it was a rootkit. malwarebytes and avast forum said this was a false detection.

Avast identifies sfloppy.sys as Root Kit
