    Default what do you mean?

    what do you mean, his results aren't showing any rootkits? How would an actual rootkit be identitifed - what would it have written next to it? My results just say Registry Keys and Files, like Nye's ones above. SO are mine not rootkits either? I thought a rootkit was anything hidden? I get "no admin in ACL" and "hidden from System32" or something like that. Not been able to delete any of them - tells me I can't, even though I AM the sole administrator and my user has administrator privileges.

    To clarify, are you saying that you are the administrator on the computer or, that you elevated Spybot's permissions?

    The RootAlyzer is an analyst tool, are you experiencing issues with the computer?

    Best regards.
