TDDSKiller is a free rootkit removal utility by Kaspersky Labs. TDSSKiller has been excellent at detecting, curing and removing specific rootkit buried on the hard drive. I have utilized TDSSKiller many times and has never failed me once. If you have all your anti virus, malware scanners and pc still showing signs of infection, run TDSSKiller through to see if it detects any rootkit or boot sector viruses.
“A rootkit is a program or a program kit that hides the presence of malware in the system. A rootkit for Windows systems is a program that penetrates into the system and intercepts the system functions (Windows API). It can effectively hide its presence by intercepting and modifying low-level API functions. Moreover it can hide the presence of particular processes, folders, files and registry keys. Some rootkits install its own drivers and services in the system (they also remain invisible).”
TDSSKiller is a very quick scan, 5 minutes or less. It is actually very simple to use, download TDSSKiller and save to pc.
