    Hello SkyGarden,

    The RootAlyzer is an analyst tool. In general all items found by the RootAlyzer are not necessarily malicious, sometimes even legitimate software uses rootkit technologies.

    How is the computer running, any particular reason you ran a scan looking for rootkits?

    Best regards.
