    Hello friends. In a recent scan, I came across a file called utqwotgz.sys, which is located in
    C: / Windows/System32/drivers. A scan at Virus Total site shows me that 19 brands of antivirus consider it as a malware. The community of the same site proves indecisive. Some point to the file as belonging to AVZ tool virus removal tool, but it happens that I never installed this tool on my computer.
    I would like to hear from you.

    Thanks.

    Submit the file to multiple AV vendors for analysis. See the following on how to submit the file for analysis.

    AVZ is dropping a ute0mzk1.sys - 20/43 - MD5 : 524d8d450622db4a7875b111c299a76b here which seems to auto-delete after a scan is completed.

    So those 20/43 detections are false positives in the case with my sample?
