I have had clean scans (McAfee, ESET Online, SpyBot - except 3 media cookies), but a SpyBot 2 Rootkit Deep Scan then returned the following result. I believe I completed a Rootkit quick scan first with no results, before seeing the deep scan option.

\\??\c:\doc..& Settings\All Users\App..Data\Microsoft\Office\Data No admin in ACL

I cannot find clear information on this as a problem or how to handle it. It sounds like a security hole to me, if the folder doesn't have an Access Control List. Why is it reported?

Also, MS Office is no longer on this computer. There are still these entries in Add/Remove Programs for Office. Should I remove them?

Actually, there's a log that states more. What do these hidden directory items mean?
