Hi All, I was running an on-demand scan with Comodo Cleaning Essentials > full scan, and it found two files -  Rootkit.HiddenFile in the recycle bin. I only use Comodo Cleaning Essentials as a check up, as I read elsewhere to treat its results with caution, but in this case I did attempt to clean the two possible rootkits, and Comodo crashed. Possible this is a false positive, but better safe than sorry!


Attached are three screenshots of CCE. I have read through your Preparation Guide, downloaded x64 FSRT, and the two logs are attached.


Many thanks in advance, Chigwells.
