    I would not go by one software scan, use several different ones to ensure you do not have false positives.
    Try each of the following to ensure infection.
    TDSSKiller Free Download | Rootkit Remova | Kaspersky Lab US
    Free Anti Rootkit Tool | Rootkit Detection and Removal | Sophos Virus Removal
    Rootkit Remover | Bitdefender Labs

    If you are not getting any rootkit reports from all the scans you've tried it is possible that RogueKiller has already cleaned it out for you.

    If you are still concerned about this, I recommend you go to bleeping computer, join that site and open a topic in the "Am I infected?" forum. People there will help you for free, and are quite knowledgeable about malware.

    If you want to see if there is indeed a rootkit hiding on you drive, then you need to look at it with GParted. This is a bootable partition manager that will allow you to see the contents of your drive, including any hidden partitions.

    Rootkits generally cloak themselves from Windows disk management. This application will show the entire contents of the disk.

    GParted -- A free application for graphically managing disk device partitions

    D/L GParted, select the medium you wish to use & run it at boot time. Any rootkit will show up, usually at the end of the drive, as a hidden boot partition between 1 to 10 MB depending on the variant. If such an item is present, you have confirmation & can take steps to remove it.
