    .
    Any idea how this one compares with other antimalware tools? There are quite a few tools that detect root kits, but aren't dedicated ARKs. Do dedicated tools such as TM RootkitBuster have better detection?

    The paper Anti-Stealth Fighters: Testing for Rootkit Detection and Removal has tests using 30 rootkit samples and also 30 samples of malware hidden by rootkits. Products tested include 14 anti-rootkit programs, as well as some other security programs. The tests were done in late 2007.

    I don't know how effective it is but it is blisteringly fast, I didn't find anything on my pc.

    Still very weak, what it detects very often cannot be deleted using the same tool:( RootkitBluster - boisterous with no buster.

    Detection is more important, cleaning is often impossible and not really recommended :doubt:

    Ya, prevention is the only one useful thing. I would not sure to fully remove a rootkit and repair his damages neither with a more powerful tool as GMER.

    For someone that removes malware, disassembles code I've totally lost the sense of your post:)

    edit : okay never mind I understand you.

    What, if anything, has changed in terms of detection-n-removal capabilities since this TechNet article was published?

    A whole lot seems to have changed in terms of new rootkit AUTHORING strategies.
    http://rootkit.com/
    http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/149677-3/how_to_root_out_rootkits.html

    The Sysinternals RootkitRevealer doc doesn't specifically mention MBR rootkits.
    The TrendMicro doc does, it specifically claims ability to detect MBR kits.
