I decide to install NIS 2010 over my NIS 2009 today.

Once I installed NIS 2010, i couldn' turn on the updates, nor could I perform a scan.

So, I uninstalled NIS 2010 and attempted to install it again.

The program started but when I clicked install, nothing happens.

I tried this in safe mode and also tried running the installation as an administrator, but to no avail.

Finally, it struck me that i might have a root kit on my laptop(Windows vista, 32-bit)

So, I installed a root kit scanner called GMER and found the following problems.

Here is the log file:

What should I do next?

Is it safe to remove them using sysprot anti root kit?
