    if you don´t understand why do you answer..

    A thread without process could be a rootkit. Understand now?

    Hi

    GMER shows threads when its entry point doesn't belongs to any module.

    Regards

    Absolutely useless feature Gmer. It generate almost only false positives and have no sense.

    Are my units with XP Professional the only ones that suffer a GMER instability problems.

    Every new release reminds me of the old 98 software programs when the buttons of a poorly coded app would "flicker" and every time you used your mouse to press a tab or checkmark, there was a "marked" delay in reaction from the time you clicked to the time it responded.

    There absolutely MUST be a reason no other rootkit detector (have plenty in inventory), and i mean not a one except this one behaves so erratically.

    If GMER could offer some explaination to this ongoing endless issue.

    I guess i should count my blessings and be glad it doesn't BSOD my system because i absolutely detest rebooting because of dodgy coded software.

    Gmer often leads to bsod, especially while scanning the files or ads.

    Thanks for info!:thumb:

    So does this mean that Thread 4:2556 is a false positive? I know that its assesments of AVG as a rootkit were incorrect...

    Of course false positive, thread start address can be faked by rootkits, so this feature almost everytime gives false positives.

    Lucky for you. I never been able to get it to even start scanning files or ads. Mine is not a knock at it for the sake of just knocking it either. I have tried with every darn release expecting one of them to finally settle down to at least a more stable or stationary position but no joy; it always flickers, jumps, and can't even navigate the checkmarks, buttons without a marked delay in response. That's not to mention other items that simply don't respond at all. Where's the bugs forums for Gmer, i like to pass a few of interest in that direction.

    I agree with EASTER.2010 when it comes to the stability of the GMER ark tool. I do not use it any longer.
