Quick question--are all rootkits evil?

Just ran the Sophos Anti-Rootkit scanner and found 10 rootkits. One is obviously a bad one--it's in the internet temp folder and has UCGOD with some obvious stuff. But the others seem related to installed programs:

C:\Program Files\Kuma Games\bin\tier0_s.dll
C:\Program Files\WebEx\WebEx\830\atocres.dll
C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional\RunTime\11\00\Intel32\iuser.dll
C:\Program Files\Kuma Games\bin\engine.dll
C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.Resources\zh_CN.lproj\DevicePrefsApps.nib\objects.xib
C:\Documents and Settings\xxx\Local Settings\Application Data\Backup\xxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxx\PPM-Private Placement Memorandum Template, Real Estate, Private Investor Memorandums, Regulation

Oh, here's the other one--I just tried to remove it and it said it wasn't recommended for removal. What the [bleep]? Do I have to go through life with this hanging over my head, not knowing what's being said or discussed about me behind my back??? Who wants to live like that???


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
