Hello,

Actually that log looks clean. What do you think is an indication of malware in this log? It just looks like you have Comodo or something similar installed which explains what you see in the log.

It doesn't tell you those are rootkits, it shows some entries that it does not by default recognize. GMER is not a standard scan tool saying that everything it lists is potentially bad. It is an anti-rootkit tool meaning that it shows certain objects that based on their characteristics theoretically could indicate rootkit activity. However, this log is absolutely clean. :)
