View Full Version : RootAlyzer results, help needed

Hi, I need some help interpreting the results of a RootAlyzer scan. This is the first time I've used it and the scan has identified files and a registry key as possible malware.

I have fairly basic computer know how and am not sure what to make of these results. I am particularly concerned about the Registry key as this seems to be associated with Microsoft Security center and is flagged red. I am not sure what most of the files refer to apart from pictures downloaded from a mobile.

Help and advice appreciated.

Hello Palmer,

Those entries do not look bad, mostly diagnostic files.

How is your computer running? :)

Best regards.

Hello Tashi,

Thanks for your advice. My computer is glitchy and temperamental at the moment which is why I ran the RootAlyzer. However I think the behaviour is mainly due to a lack of RAM. It is fairly old and needs a memory boost.
