    scan with a couple other any spywares to see if they pick it up.. rootkits usually cannot be removed with software, an uninstaller(manually made) or manual removal with a preloaded environment is usually needed.

    Usually they are made to try to take control over your computer, but most of them fail and cause blue screens of death.
