What is rootkit


A rootkit is software that is malicious and conceals the presence or operation of another program so that it is difficult to be detected by traditional anti-virus / anti-malware programs. It also makes the higher privilege accounts in the computer ("admin" in Windows and in the case of unix machines - "root") available to the malicious software that permits manipulation of programs and settings that lower classes of account holders usually do not have.

As you may be able to tell, a rootkit installed on a computer is very dangerous. You must use applications that specifically identify, locate and help remove them when found. Traditional anti-virus and anti-malware programs do not do this.

If you suspect a rootkit is running on your computer, google "rootkit" and look for links to programs that will detect and remove them. Most are free. Follow the directions and you should be able to remove it without losing any data on your computer.

Computer may be hacked or have a virus


Most peoples computers are filled with viruses and trojans. I delete the problem files manually using spynomore to point the way (free to use pay to remove) I unhide hidden folders and system files and use the registry to remove the bad stuff. Sometimes a severe rootkit is too much to remove and it requires a reinstall of windows, that is why i use unhackme and spynomore so that i know the moment i am infected and can do a system restore if necessary. But system restores only go back about 5 or 6 days. It may be too late if you have a rootkit already. To have me teamview you to remove your trojans for free contact me at mikadot at hotmail dot com you'll need to install teamviewer to do that I would need the ID and password

My MS Windows Professional computer(version 5.1.2600 service pack.Build - 2600) is slow on all fronts.Need ABSOLUTELY FREE fixing,subsequent to a free scan.All offers on the web are for free scans.But...


The BEST solution is to reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows and your applications.

The easiest would be to run an anti-virus & malware program. AVG is a decent free anti-virus scanner. Programs like MalwareBytes Anti-Malware & Spybot are decent at trying to remove malware/rootkit infestations.

However, the simplest and most effective solution is to start over from a clean slate.

Vista and Virus/Spyware Software


Hi
There is a huge range of anti - virus software out there. The main decision is whether you want to pay for it or not.

If you want complete security, I would recommend you read this guide. It gives you the run down of the best ways to fight infection.

If you want something lightweight then I would go with avast antivirus. The free version provides anti virus, anti spyware and anti Rootkit. With this installed you can pretty much forget about security problems. And it's free!

However, if you want the best there is I'd go for NOD32 - it frequently scores as the best product.

If you're looking for something that should work seamlessly with your operating system with a fantastic user interface then Windows Live Onecare along with Windows Defender might be for you, though I can't promise them being lightweight on the system resources.

This site provides a run down of all the best free scanners for every type of infection. Even if you choose to pay for something I'd recommend using the Trojan and Rootkit scanners that are suggested there - just yesterday they allowed me to locate and destroy a Rootkit that got past my protection.

Hope this is helpful to your decision.

Rootkit


If you have a virus/spyware which it sounds like you do, you are going to be paying $200 for removal and about 129$ for a standard security setup! It will be cheaper to fix the problem, You are looking around a min. of $400 for a new pc and $149 for the full advanced security! Cheaper to fix it.
