With Kaspersky’s Free TDSSKiller You’ll Have A Fighting Chance To Kill Rootkits

There’s malware, and then – there’s MALWARE. In other words, all malware is not created equal. For example, Rootkits are not your common everyday piece of malware.

Rootkits are often designed to overwrite the Hard Drive’s MBR (master boot record), the first sector – Sector 0 – where the code to boot the operating system following BIOS loading, resides.

Bitdefender also have 2 free scanners, a 32 and 64 bit version that does pretty much the same thing. The biggest concern was over the rootkit TLD4 which has the ability to mess with the MBR.

I tested the tdsskiller.exe, is working fine in my system and its fast.

No problems here only positives.

I will keep it as an extra scanner

Thanks JMH!

My daughter's Win 7 computer was failing to install some updates. I downloaded and ran tdsskiller. It detected and removed a rootkit infection. Since then, updates have been fine. Great tool when you need it.
