    total protection conflict with webroot spysweeper 5.8

      I just replaced norton internet security 2009 with total protection 2009. After installation and updates were complete webroot spysweeper 5.8 identified file "HKLM\SOFTWARE\McAfee||SymbolicLinkValue" as a potential masked rootkit. I then send the file to the Quarantine folder BUT it is identified again on the next webroot spysweeper sweep.

      NOTE that previous to installation of total protection that webroot was NOT identifying this file.

      Does anyone know if there is a conflict between webroot spysweeper 5.8 and mcafee total protection that would cause webroot spysweeper 5.8 to identify a valid mcafee file as a potential rootkit?

      AND/OR

      Can anyone confirm that HKLM\SOFTWARE\McAfee||SymbolicLinkValue is a valid McAfee Total Protection file?
