I just ran RootkitRevealer by sysinternal and it found over 1500 "discrepancies". Granted about 1510 of them were from Norton Utilities undelete thing. But, it did find a couple in my temp internet files, i had emptied them before i ran this. How do i get rid of them??

How do i go about deleting them? I have no idea what to do with rootkits and things like that.

Also, i dont know if it fits in here, but im about to encrypt my entire harddrive with CompUSec, is there any reason not to? No site seems to give any reason why it is a bad thing, and i just want to check with your guys first before i mess up my computer.
