Inline hook ntoskrnl.exe

A few days ago my virus scan popped up with about 32 unresolved threats. All of them were rootkit threats found in this ntoskrnl.exe file in system 32. I have ran a bunch of other scans on different software and AVG seems to be the only one detecting this. Rootkits are a severe problem and I don't know how to go about removing them. What can I do about this?
