    Default Rootkit Result Guidance Required

    Hello


    I require guidance on the following Rootkit results.


    RootKitScanReport-09Dec2015.png

    Which ones should I remove and which ones I should not? Are they harmless? Recently my computer has been having severe problems, with possible suspicion of malware. Though so far, Spybot S&D search results have not revealed anything out of the ordinary.

    The RootAlyzer is an analyst tool and the attachment you provided inconclusive, sometimes even legitimate software may use rootkit technologies.

    In general all items found by the RootAlyzer are not necessarily malicious but shows items it believes to be out of the ordinary.

    If you suspect an infection it would be best if someone can take a look at the system in the Malware Removal Forum

    Please start a new topic there after reading that forum's FAQ which also includes instructions in post #2 on how to provide the logs from Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and aswMBR, which are the logs used in the preliminary analysis.

    Then a volunteer analyst will advise as soon as available.

    Best regards.
