    Raymond over at Raymond.cc has done a new test, and this time he is testing AntiRootkits!

    And it seems that Sophos AntiRootkit solution was the only one that removed the file succsessfully without the need of renaming the file etc...

    The whole test Here

    The only actual AntiRootkit software is GMER; RootkitRevealer is outdated, the other removal tools. I also quote Radix, and I add RootRepeal.

    Thanks, SweX! It's always a good idea to keep this topic in front of members, in my opinion.

    I'll quickly point out for anyone running F-Secure Blacklight that the Help file mentions...

    Does anyone here have an opinion or experience with Radix?
    Edit in: The Radix support forum has a grand total of 3 posts for 2010. All the rest are from 2009. Doesn't look encouraging.

    This antirootkit tools aren't intended for general users. How many of them can distinguish between FP and legit ones?
