I ran a GMER scan on a Windows Server 2000 to look for malware.

The scan showed no errors for files or processes but did show in red the registry entries for

HLM>SAM>SAM>Domains>Default (The Dir Domains is in Red also)
HLM>SAM>SAM>RXACT>Default (The Dir RXACT is in Red also)

HLM>SECURITY>CACHE> NL$n (where n is a no 1 - 10) )(The Dir Cache is in Red Also)
HLM>SECURITY>CACHE> NL$n (where n is a no 1 - 10)
HLM>SECURITY>POLICY>N$Control (The Dir Policy is in Red Also)
HLM>SECURITY>RXACT>Default (only key in directory) (The Dir RXACT is in Red Also)

I believe this may be a false positive, since this is a window 2000 server, possible the GMER is not totally updated for this OS. Any opinions?

Thanks, I also notice that the same registry keys are in Red for my XP machine. So I am thinking this may be a false positive. Any opinion appreciated.

Hello let's get a second opinion with ROOTREPEAL

Next Please install RootRepeal

Go HERE, and download RootRepeal.zip to your Desktop.
Tutorial with images ,if needed >> L@@K.
Unzip that,(7-zip tool if needed) and then click RootRepeal.exe to open the scanner.
Next click on the Report tab, now click on Scan. A Window will open asking what to include in the scan. Check all of the below and then click OK.

Stealth Objects
Hidden Services

Now you'll be asked which drive to scan. Check C: and click OK again and the scan will start. Please be patient as the scan runs. When the scan has finished, click on Save Report.
Name the log RootRepeal.txt and save it to your Documents folder (it should automatically save it there).
Please copy and paste that into your next reply.
