    Default Have I been infected with a rootkit

    So today I recently did a spybot check like I normally do.
    and found this

    Type: File
    Object: eat them.jpgox
    Location: D:\
    Details: Invisible to Win32

    Type: Folder
    Object: Boott! s
    Location: C:\
    Details: Invisible to Win32

    Are these rootkits and should I be worried about my computer's safety?

    I deleted them with spybot but does anyone know if I should be worried about my private information such as steam account amazon youtube facebook ect ect?

    Hello chowder908,

    Type: File
    Object: eat them.jpgox
    Location: D:\
    Details: Invisible to Win32

    Is D:\ an external drive, do you use Play Station?

    Type: Folder
    Object: Boott! s
    Location: C:\
    Details: Invisible to Win32

    There is an old thread where it is mentioned but I don't know if the user sent the file in.

    What is your operating system and how is the computer running in general, any problems?

    Best regards.
