New rootkit scanner

Found this in my travels and am wondering if anyone has used it yet. I know it is beta but the company is so well known I thought of giving it a go.

Cool, nice to see the team making more good tools for scanning infected computers.
EDIT: Pretty sure this is a false positive but malwarebytes rootkit scanner gave me this when I first opened it but I don't want to mess with it because idk if it's a false positive or not and don't want to make my system go bonkers because I removed something I wasn't suppose to. Anyways pressed no and let the program update after pressing next. So what's your guys thought on this?

I got that too when I 1st ran it. It may well be a legit dll. See the start of this article:

Actually unless I missed something somewhere this beat is only there until Dec 10th so is it becoming redundant, a full free or paid version cos the more the merrier I say.

I agree. I used this twice now with nothing coming up. Always like to have an "extra" though and anything Malwarebytes comes out with has an advantage for me.

Thank you, now I know for sure it's a false positive.
