    Rootkit Revealer is not really designed for Vista I am finding. It runs oddly and finds a lot of false positives, or at least things that i don't know what they are.

    Can anyone recommend a Rootkit revealer for Vista out of this list, hopefully free:

    Hello RobOK,

    Based upon personal experience, two of the best free rootkit detectors for Vista are GMER and RootRepeal.

    GMER - http://www.gmer.net/files.php
    RootRepeal - http://rootrepeal.googlepages.com/home

    Hope this helps.


    Peace & Gratitude,

    Thanks...

    I will be away for a bit so I won't be able to post back my success with these -- thanks for the pointers!

    Rob.

    AVZ antiviral toolikit or IceSword? Both have served me well under Vista.
