I have recently found that I have this hacking program on my pc. I haven't really been able to find a way to actually remove it, despite my searches. I was wondering if anyone would be able to give me a hand with this.

My specs are:

Windows 8.1
AMD fx 8350
gtx 1070
gigabyte 990fxa-ud3
8gb ram

Thanks in advance

Then you are using pirated software. That is the problem.

Tom's Hardware does not support any form of software piracy. None. Period.

A fresh install of Windows with a legal product key will resolve the issue.

Case closed.

I do have it installed. I went into the folder and deleted windivert.sys. Would this be enough?

windivert tends to get installed when you install pirate software. It is used to fake activation and steal userid and passwords. Sometimes it is used to cheat at games. you generally can search your drive for the program and boot into safe mode and manually delete the file. Some hack programs will reinstall it later via the task scheduler or other means.
