AVG AV seems to have a decent following here, anyone skate with AVG Anti-Rootkit Beta? Blessings / Curses?

Tried it last week, very fast. I will use it along side another rootkit scanner, F-Secure BlackLight click here.

Hope this helps.

vinnyT, hola

Thanks for feedback. Yeah, I got it running as one of five and it’s nice and fast. It failed to turn up anything though and I hoped it might. Only one has drawn attention to anything it found as suspicious, although it didn’t ring the definitive “this is a r00t-kit” bell. It was right to be suspicious too because what it found was part of my stealthed from the OS defences. In fairness though I maybe doing Ice Sword a disservice. It is fairly new to me and translation scant. click here

Thanks again.

Hi welcome.

One of mine, rootkit revealer, supposedly found something but wasn't definative, after alot of research on the net I decided it was a -+ (prob thrown up by one of the others).

Reading some of these rootkit scanners can be a science in itself:-)

Hope alls well.
