help please! scan has detected 30 threats (all same threats) not sure if safe to remove! help!

  malouey 10:40 26 Sep 2013

the threats are coming up as:-

inlinehookwin32k.sys.XLATEOBJ_ixlate+OXAA317539 part of operating system

I am totally untechy but don't want to ruin the PC - any help appreciated please! (please explain in "basic" way!)

I also have Avast antivirus on there and that seems to pick up everything so hopefully this is nothing too bad.

thank you.

When you say 'coming up', what do you mean (ie, what are you scanning with)?

Do you have more than one anti virus scanner on your system?

Do you have two anti-virus programs running? If you do, remove one of them. Googling "inlinehookwin32k.sys" suggests that is likely to be your problem.
