Subject: [inbox] Re: Help, possible rootkit

Perhaps is a piece of spyware and not a rootkit afterall?  Spyware would be
a more common item to find on a computer system than a rootkit.  Run
Spoybot: search and destroy and Adaware on your machine.

  How up to date is your Antivirus as well?  Did you run a full antivirus
scan on your system to rule out a virus?
