    Default What to do with the results of the Rootkit Scan

    The rootkit scan brings a lot of results.
    But can I just remove all the keys in the registry?
    And is it garanteed that my programs still work an window starts?

    best greetings Karl

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

    Sometimes even legitimate software uses rootkit technologies. How is the computer running?

    Best regards.
