    I spent over 3 hours trying to get *(#U&# microsoft's System Sweeper ISO to work. But it's a piece of junk and would never work. Even called the tech support line but they were useless.

    Anybody know any other Rootkit Scanners that allow you to burn ISO to CD and then boot into a "Live" OS (linux or Windows) to perform the scan on the OS that is installed on the hard drive?

    RegRun Warrior - Removing rootkits is best done from the outside!

    RegRun Warrior offers you a way to quickly detect and remove hidden rootkits/viruses/malware from your computer using the special boot CD.

    Put the Warrior CD into your CD-drive and restart your computer!

    Warrior automatically scans your computer and gets back to the normal Windows mode.

    System Sweeper is an AV CD, not anti-rookit. If you're looking for those, there's plenty of alternatives. If you want rookit only, then I only know of Rootkitty on UBCD4Win.
