Windows 7: Rootkit Found

23 Jun 2010   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1

Currently, I only have 1 AV - KIS 2010.
Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro are not on the machine because a long time ago when I joined Kaspersky's community, they said that third party programs conflict with their software. Whether is does or not I don't know but I'm not taking chances. Does anyone know if they conflict or not?

Windows 7 & Windows Vista Ultimate

So I take it that you have uninstalled Hitman Pro and Malwarebytes (Surprising Discovery).

What they meant at the KAV forums is that two real-time protection software programs can cause conflicts. The free versions of MBAM and SAS do not include real-time protection so either can safely be used as alternate scanners. Don't you also have Windows Defender? Has that conflicted with KAV?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1

I have Windows Defender. A couple times when I opened it with Norton installed it was turned off. With Kaspersky IS installed, it's not off either.
Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro were both free. I didn't want to pay for them so I just downloaded the free version of them. But that makes sense what you said about them conflicting if they had real-time functionality and it was turned on.

I may just download those 2 scanners again...

Everything so far seems to be in working order. That's a good thing too! Viruses are murder to get rid of!
