View Full Version : Rootkit Detection And Removal

from shellcity.net ........... Detecting the presence of rootkits and the products they are stealthing is not easy. Certainly most anti-virus and anti-spyware scanners can't detect them though a few are just now starting to add features to help with detection. What is needed is a specialist rootkit detector.....(free) Here (http://www.pcsupportadvisor.com/rootkits.htm)

never have found one on any machines though.

Does that mean "I do the same" or "I'm a Wallaby"?

I used RootkitRevealer once, but the output meant just about nothing to me, so Kingster graciously offered to check it out for anything suspicious. It was a nice program, and appears to have done a thorough job, but it doesn't really help you with removal unless you understand what the program tells you.
