    Hello asanguy,

    Those are System Diagnostics, Microsoft OFFICE and Temporary Internet Files, not a root kit.

    Kind regards.

    Thank you Tashi.

    Just wanted to be sure as don't use RootAlyzer very often but was quite surprised when it suggested there might be a problem.

    Doesn't hurt to check.

    In general all items found by the RootAlyzer are not necessarily malicious, it shows items which it believes to be out of the ordinary and may give a hint for an infection.

    Sometimes legitimate software uses rootkit technologies too.

    Any other issues, you mentioned in the topic title that the computer is slow?

    Best regards.

    No other issues found. Have scanned with malwarebytes and spybot. Mcaffee found 6 or so viruses in email attachments but they were never opened emails and were quarantined anyway. Other than that it's just massively slow.

    You could post at a tech site for advice about that issue, for instance this forum at What The Tech: Microsoft Windows
