    Will the install ProcessGuard detect a rootkit if present or just prevent one from installing?

    Hi hardyhar, ProcessGuard will stop rootkits from installing and may aid in identifying some rootkits but if you have a rootkit basically it owns your machine - Cleaning a stealthed rootkit is very difficult if not impossible to even expert users. Almost certainly quicker to reformat and start again.
    They are not good news. :(

    Thanks Pilli for your reply ;)
    I knew that they were diffucult to remove and formatting was the best thing to do if you got one of these nasties. They are definitly bad news. :eek:
