Anti Rootkits question
« on: December 20, 2007, 07:11:21 AM »
Their are so many different types of free Anti Rootkits software to choose, and I only have AVG Anti Rootkits free on my desktop.

My question is it one Rootkits software is enough or do I need another one I know how to look after my PC from virus and spyware etc etc.

I am just not 100% if one it enough if you know which Anti Rootkits software would you highly recommand me, please tell me you review about the software  that you find one is better than two.

Thank you

rootikits are not very well-spead so in my opinion,one anti-rootkit is enough..u can choose another one though..it depends on u..if u use the web safely then rootkits are very hard to find..as for which anti-rootkit program i recommend,avg seems nice to me..maybe an evangelist can show u a list of recommended anti-rootkits

cheers,george

GMER seems a very advanced antirootkit scanner. I'm not able to analyze its reporting, though.
AVG, Panda, F-Secure or TrendMicro are antirootkits easier for us, common users.
Some of them loads low level drivers, so I won't install that many of them to now delay the boot process.
