    BOClean is the pre-eminent rootkit detector/killer.

    Stop them from getting in and you wont have to worry about wasting your time trying to dig them out. -> ProcessGuard ;)

    I think you do (need more protection from rootkits).
    My 1st choice is BOClean
    2nd UnhackMe (no conflict among them,even with latest BOCORE)
    3rd ,an occasional check with Blacklight, until its free
    4th an occasional glance with Rootkit Hook Analyzer,just to watch
