Actually there is no reason to be alarmed. The wording displayed during your scan could have been better worded, and has been discussed in our calls.
It simply means that it is "Scanning for Rootkits", not that it has detected one, per se. As long as your scan completes without issues, again there is no reason to be concerned.
All the very best
