A public beta is available here:
This will be free?
i thought the beta version of antivirus with firewall had anti rootkits already?, if it doesnt will it be included in the final version? also i beleive spysweeper has rootkit detection, will there be any conflicts with either the seperate beta test or if rootkits are included in final anti virus w/firewall beta?
It is my understanding this only detects active rootkits and not the inactive one stored inside files. In that case the Avira AntiVir on-demand scanner tool must be used.
The scan is very fast, scanning 61 process and 15,982 files in 24 seconds only!!!!
But it didn't scan the registry, although I have ticked to scan the registry.
Not sure if I have missed something.
Great news, this new tool .
It did work fine here, scanning in 2.30, which is fast, and showing all hidden stuff, including hidden startup keys, during a test .
Removal features are not implemented yet though.
I'll pass. I hate rootkit detection apps with no removal skills. Just my opinion but it reminds me of some other trial security stuff: "You have problems, but pay money to fix them!"
I know that isn't the case here, but if I use an app, I like it to remove what it finds.
