rootkit remover

I have already talked about how to detect and remove annoying and dangerous rootkits from your computer. You can read this article here to know more. However, as usual, on the Internet there is always more than one way to accomplish the same results. So, here is another useful, free tool able to delete rootkits in a couple of simple steps! If you don’t know what a rootkit is and feel unsure if your computer has got one, here is a brief except from Wikipedia: “A rootkit is malware that consists of a program, or combination of several programs, designed to hide or obscure the fact that a system has been compromised.”.

RootkitBuster is an easy-to use, free Rootkit remover, directly provided by the famous antivirus house, Trend Micro.  The way it works and its  user interface, put this tool on top of my personal list of anti-malware applications for its easiness and simple and essential aspect.

Once you have installed it on your computer, click its icon sitting on the desktop, and from the its main window, click Scan Computer. RootkitBuster will scan your whole computer, including hidden  files and folders, MBR and the Windows operating system registry to look for rootkits. At the end of the search, the tool will display a list of rootkits found. To delete them, simply click the Delete Selected Items button and you are done!

Download Trend Micro RootkitBuster.
