Default FREE Panda Anti-Rootkit

This is a very useful program that can be had here for free. I consider it a hot deal. But If you disagree or can't use it please do not spoil it for all those that can. Thank you. Enjoy!!!

The best free solution for detecting and eliminating rootkits

Rootkits are programs designed to hide files, processes or registry entries. They can be used to hide viruses, Trojans and other malicious code, making them invisible to users and security software.

As a result, users could be unaware that their computers could be sending out spam, launching attacks against other computers or even harboring Trojans used to steal confidential data.

Panda Anti-Rootkit scans computers for hidden items in running processes, the Windows registry, and local hard disks. On detecting a malicious rootkit, Panda Anti-Rootkit completely eliminates it along with all of the programs it could be hiding, including files, processes, registry entries and the ADSs associated to the rootkits.

Panda Anti-Rootkit, offers simple, fast and free protection against online fraud and data theft using hidden malicious code.

This free solution is updated online and be used as often as you like.

PC Magazine Editor's Choice

Panda Anti-Rootkit digs deeper than any other anti-rootkit tool I've seen, telling you exactly what it found. For safety it won't delete files digitally signed by Microsoft—smart! And it wiped out every one of my test rootkits.

PROS:
Detects rootkit activity in file system, Registry, processes, drivers, and Alternate Data Streams. Offers very detailed reports. Eliminates known and unknown rootkits.

CONS:
Basic results list is cramped in a non-resizable window.

Review:
By Neil J. Rubenking
Panda Anti-Rootkit (PAR) sifts through the files and Registry items in your computer with a fine-tooth comb, looking for evidence of rootkit activity. It reports its findings in as much detail as you can handle. It distinguishes rootkits it recognizes from unknown ones, but it will wipe out both kinds.
