So, am I to think the Google Toolbar is somehow a rootkit TROJAN?

I dunno, maybe is got installed wrong or modified at installation by a cracker?

Any ideas?

Not very descriptive info is it? Not sure why they would specify that as a rootkit.

I have been looking at this proggy "Unhack Me" and noted that there was this post at BC. I currently run Trojan Hunter and have been satisfied with it, however i do understand that it does not have the capabilities to deal with Rootkits and so I decided to post here to see if anyone has had any other comments on Unhack Me software or suggestions from experienced members of another program.
Since I am a Noob at all of this, I would need a fairly user friendly proggy.
I noted Phawgg's results in use of Unhack Me and found them somewhat strange, thus I post this for comments.
