    Any BootCD will do.

    I recommend Kaspersky, due to their superior rootkit removal and windows file replacement if they have been infected.

    I prefer some deeper and more powerful programs as PowerToolIV, XueTr or NoVirusThanks Anti-Rootkit, but they need to be implemented in Bart's Pe or similar to run before windows boot.

    Yes, but no good for 64Bit systems which will soon be commonplace.

    Couldn't install driver

    I don't know about Win8 x64 because they have expanded Patchguard so not all advanced rootkit tools may work properly, but HitmanPro is good at rootkits and with the Kickstart feature you can boot it from USB.

    It's a nice list but a bit old, some tools have not been updates for ages and not all work on x64.

    You do realize that EAM paid File Guard scans for rootkits/mbr on boot plus so does its default Smart Scan? Also custom scan can be configured as such with many other options.

    I just ran the free version of PC Hunter v1.20. Previously, XueTr ...

    There is a professional version that you can buy, but I don't know if that is really necessary.

    All AV's are good at Rootkits and WSA is very good at removing them.

    Hello,

    You might want to try ESET's new ESET SysRescue Live CD/DVD/USB program.

    Regards,

    I found WSA and Hitman Pro to be a very effective combo at finding and removing rootkits. Stellar combo.:thumb:
