    Outpost hides some files from the file system.
    It's not a rootkit but it does use some rootkit technologies.
    You'll find loads of them it's part of the cache for it.

    Don't worry . If you have downloaded from the legitimate web-site of Agnitum (Outpost) , you are OK . Outport firewall uses some techniques to scan/protect itself which some products doesn't like .

    Yes I did! But now I have re-downloaded it, re-installed it and solved my problems at system startup with nod 32.

    Thanks for help.
