    I'm not sure if this was covered in a previous thred, so excuse me if I'm repeating something. x.

    How does one go about finding out if there is a rootkit on a windows box? o_O

    Does TDS-3 detect this?

    Thanks

    Hello C05 and welcome,

    TDS detects lots of them during deep scans.

    You can detect some rootkits in Safe Mode, Hacker Defender would be a problem for any current antitrojan.

    The answer to rootkits is Process Guard, block installing of new drivers and infection of running processes :)
