Sophos Anti-Rootkit found two hidden files in the registry key
I am just trying to make sure nothing like spyware or malware is in them. I have done a check with Kaspersky Online Scanner, Nod32, Malwarebytes, Spybot S&D, and SuperAntiSpyware...all are showing nothing. Previous to this I found a file I had never heard of ATT-AACE in add/remove programs, and I deleted it. I decided to download Sandboxie, but have not read all about how to use it yet. Am I clean, or is this something to worry about? :)

The log is clean Kelkay,

I went over this with you a few times already and checked you out throughly in the haxdoor log that you had.
Please try and avoid rootkit scanners if you believe that everything it finds is harmful.

I'll wait on your reply :)

Mike

:) Hidden files are something I just want checked out, if I have not seen them before. Sophos Anti-Rootkit never had anything ever show before, ever. Then when it did, it was a trojan, and worse yet a backdoor trojan, and my computer was badly infected. All of my virus checkers said I was clean. Next thing I know I have tons of virus on computer, and go through a very long process with people's help here of getting rid of it. Anyway you have really helped me and I do very much appreciate the folks here. :) I don't know what I would of done, because I cannot afford to have my computer worked on by somebody right now. Thank you very very much!

Case resolved thanks to MIKE :)

I'm glad to hear it :)

Like I said you have to be wary of ARK (Anti-Rootkit) results. Things that are hidden aren't always, and usually aren't, malicious.

A good example would be if you have alcohol soft 120%, you'll notice a driver sptd.sys present in all the rootkit scans, but it is a harmless driver related to that program.

One last thing I have to say, if you are really very nervous about these things - I would recommend you backup your important data and reformat your PC, although unnecessary, you can then be 100% sure that nothing harmful is present.

Take care,

Mike
