The latest version of GMER has been released
Once upon a time I used GMER a lot...but the last version I used recently caused a BSOD, so I think I will give it a miss.
Now, if I want to check for rootkits, there are other alternatives....
Finally - official support for Windows 7
Nice to see an update.
A buddy's wireless NIC software installation gave him a BSOD just the other day.
Though not as common as they once were, in my experiences anyway, I wouldn't liken them to four leaf clovers just yet.
Well that and his BSOD didn't come as cheap.
Yeah, I did a double-take when I saw that.
Thanks CloneRanger for update. Does it also support x64?
Wondering about the x64 million dollar question as well. Didn't find the answer on the official site.
It will run on Win 7 x64 but with limited features. No idea how effective it is and there's no 64 bit driver.
Seems like Gmer has been updated to 1.0.15477.
I've got a problem with it.
LoadDriver( "C:\Users\ComputerUser\AppData\Local\Temp\uwliyfow.sys" ) error 0xC0000022: Access is denied.
@ Searching_ _ _
Thanks for the update
Amazing two updates in a week Wonder if there was a problem with the other one ? I havn't had any issues with that or this one which i just ran successfully
FYI i'm on XP/SP2
I'm using Vista SP2.
Maybe I'm having a driver conflict with tdss remover. I'll send him a note.
Good idea Be intersting to see what he says, so let us know
Sent the note and a log in case it's not a driver conflict.
Last time I sent him a note he didn't respond but tweaked his program.
Time will tell.
clean xpprosp3 no antianything installed...
hard reset try again...
thanks CR for updating ...actually i had the same problems with Gmer 126.96.36.19921(hanging, BSOD...) ...i used to use 1.1.4 version
PS : i dont see any changelog for the lastet version :O
Success, notice how gmer now flags the new TDL4 (x64 tdss/tdl rootkit), (edit: did not finish system scan due to crash.)
Gmer is alitle buggy
anyone has an idea why "setting tab" been removed? TT
No 'settings' tab for a while now since at least '09 or before I think.
A log file can be created with the 'save' button. If you are looking for the gmer defence options then you could go back to an earlier version or have a look at XueTr ark...
edit: you can download from the ark list at kernelmode.info or xuetr.com - linxer.
thanks for xueTr i didnt know about Block behavior settings ...but i have 2 points
first, when i close the program ...all protection settings gone unlike gmer which keeps protected mode (i guess by keep driver loaded all time)
second, gmer used for HIPS ..but XueTr used for Block behavior
which ,for me, makes gmer in my first top toolkit(sadly i have to keep on old version for settings tab)
I do not think it likes raid. If I run it on my raid 10 box (even just open and then close) wildows gradually becomes unstable and crashes.
Rootrepeal does not either, it causes a hardware level hard reboot on all disk actions (no BSOD, its like you pulled the power).
I think you are right about gmer.
Using the most recent version and moving the slider on the disk access level has helped me that now RootRepeal will run fine and stable.
My Gmer error was because the user was buggy.
Sorry for my misunderstanding, other ARK's run from other partitions.
Ran well from the C:\ drive, no red items.
hey guys..just want to let u know gmer version 188.8.131.5230 been released ...maybe the problems u used to have all fixed ^^
i hope so
