When it comes to root kits, from what I understand, it would be next to
impossible to remove. The best solution would be to reinstall the OS from
scratch (including formatting the hard drive) as I am led to believe that
this is the only way to get rid of a rootkit.

Recently, I downloaded and scanned my PC with Rootkit Reveler from
Sysinternals.  It produced a hidden registy key in:
 HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Reinstall\

Should I be concerned that this is a rootkit?

What can I do to remove this registry entry if it is hidden from regedit?

Any advice would be helpful.

Sincerely,

Erick Borgard A+, CCNA
