Bitdefender Rootkit Remover
The company Bitdefender Labs introduced to the public a new product called Bitdefender Rootkit Remover. PC owners offers a powerful tool to combat rootkits - one of the most dangerous types of malicious programs.
According to the developer, the application effortlessly cope with the majority of existing "rootkits", such as Mebroot, TDL (TDL / SST / Pihar), Mayachok, Mybios, Plite, XPaj, Whistler, Alipop, Cpd, Fengd, Fips, Guntior, MBR Locker, Mebratix, Niwa, Ponreb, Ramnit, Stoned, Yoddos, Yurn, Zegost, Necurs and many others.
Special mention deserves the exceptional ease-to-use application. Rootkit Remover does not involve long-term adjustments. You do not even have to install the program on your hard drive. Run the utility, click the button «Start Scan» and Rootkit Remover tries to detect signs of the presence of "rootkits" on the system. Scanning takes a few seconds, because the application does not try to check every file on the hard disk, and searches of known threats. Removal of malicious software (in the case of detection) is also carried out without user intervention.
It must be remembered that the Rootkit Remover does not claim to full system security. The product can not detect new and lesser known threats and can not prevent infection of your system. However, a small free tool from Bitdefender can be considered as an additional layer of protection, especially since the developers guarantee it completely non-conflict with existing antivirus. If you suspect that you are a victim of rootkit and antivirus installed reports no threats, use of the proposed small utility that quickly confirm or deny your fears.
The application works with the operating systems Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. A newer version of Bitdefender Rootkit Remover 1.0 is a free download from the developer:
