    I have unhackme - and also run SAS and AVG AM. Is unhackme needed (slows boot)

    Are there any tests comparing it aginst SAS / AVG AM - I know AVG AM says it detects rootkits.

    Opinions / advice please.

    Cheers,

    ChrisP

    i will tell u that count on a problem i have in one of my pc`s. there was a dialler which call to some place in the net , d/l crap and occupy my full BW line.
    i try them all ... nod32 , kaspersy, adware...and more... yes... they detect it and claim to remove it BUT it back again upon reboot.
    UNHACKME del this malware in 1 reboot!! and free me from format the pc :cautious: so its realy good to have it amongst all other progs u mention

    Hi,

    How effective? I think it is very much so.

    It detects a trojan TUKERNEL.EXE sitting in system32 folder, during those times, none of my AV or AS has smelled it. (PREVX may have done so, if it was still left in, damn--d, a catch 22 situation for me re PREVX)

    Just before deleting it, I curiously open the file, luckily it can not open in 32 bits environment, perhaps that is why it has not done any harm or has not been detected by AV/AS.

    Anyway, after deletion, the system still functions well, I just hope it is not a F.P.

    Take care.
