    I recently ran an AVG test and got :

    "";"C:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\cdrom.sys";"Trojan horse Crypt.ANVH";"Object is white-listed (critical/system file that should not be removed)"

    As my one and only problem.
    It is white listed and is supposed to be crucial to operation.

    Am I being trolled?

    Edit : Also, my machine often has 100% CPU spikes for long periods of time and then goes down for a while only to start up again. I checked my Task Manager's processes as well as used Process Explorer to try to find a culprit, but no process shows up. can this virus be the root of the 100% CPU spikes?
