    Hacktool Rootkit !?

    Hi :

    I assume your Rootkit Revealer Scan implied you have Hacktool rootkit !? If True,
    I recommend you try the FREE program at .

    IF this program does NOT resolve the "problem", I recommend you ask for help
    from the Expert Volunteers that staff the "Rootkit Revelations" sub-forum at .

    I noticed in your HijackThis log an outdated Adobe program, a security risk and
    recommend you either get the latest version or uninstall the program .

    Also noticed a way-out-of-date Java program from Sun; Best to ONLY have their
    latest, so I recommend you uninstall ALL "Versions" you have of this program,
    then get their latest at .

    You MAY have other outdated programs, so I recommend you run the FREE
    Online Scanner at and follow its
    Recommendations .
