Trend Micro Rootkit Buster - rootkit scanner and remover

Trend Micro Rootkit Buster helps you remove dangerous rootkits from your system.

A rootkit according to Wikipedia, is

a set of software tools intended to conceal running processes, files or system data from the operating system. Rootkits have their origin in benign applications, but in recent years have been used increasingly by malware to help intruders maintain access to systems while avoiding detection.

To ease the above definition, you can say a rootkit is mostly dangerous. Some of them are created to take control of your system and that is why freeware such as Rootkit Buster exists. It is very easy to use, you just need to select a combination of Files, Registry, Processes, or Drivers to scan and click the Scan button. If any rootkits are found, a list will be displayed and you can select to remove them from your system. Easy-peasy usage there.

Still in doubt whether your system is safe from rootkits or not? Don't hesitate to download Rootkit Buster by Trend Micro to clear all your doubts.
