I ran Sysinternals RootkitRevealer and it found 3 entries. The first is listed above in the topic description.The second entry reads the same as the first except for SAI* instead of SAC*. The last entry reads : HKLM\software\classes\CLSID\and a very long number chain. These are all described as Key name contains embedded nulls. I was reading my computer magazine and read about Rootkitrevealer and decided to run it but it is a bit over my head. I can't make sense out of microsofts sysinternals home web page. Am I infected with a rootkit or do I have a false positive? I also ran Blacklight and it found nothing.

I also ran Blacklight and it found nothing

RKR scans for hidden files and hidden registry keys; BlackLight will scan for hidden files and hidden processes.
