    Everytime I try to launch RootKit revealer, I get this message:
    "Unable to install RootkitRevealer service: Overlapped I/O operation is in progress."

    What is wrong? how can I fix it?

    Comp01, hello. Are you using DCS Process Guard, or a similar app? I get a similar (but different) message when I start RKR without disabling some of PG's functionality.

    Have you tried emailing Mark (from Sysinternals), I have always found that he replies fairly quickly

    It might help if you give a little bit of background when you send the email.
    Things like
    • O/S version & what patches applied (ie: fully patched or not)
    • What type of user account you are using (Adminstrator level or restricted user)
    • The RR version you are using (is it the latest one)
    • Have you ever run RR before on this machine without errors
    • Any protective/security software you have that you think might be relevant
    Mark's email address is on his website http://www.sysinternals.com/AboutUs.html

    Ah, sorry for the delay. Anyways, No, I haven't emailed him, but I will.

    I'm not running DCS Process Guard, I am running AntiHook now (But not at the time of me trying to run it.) I have ran it before on this system, but not on this windows installation, I am running in Administrator mode when I attempt to run it, still to no avail it does not work, I have yet to figure it out.
