New Anti-Rootkit (Version 1.08) from Panda Security

Rootkits are malicious programs that enable administrator-level access to a computer or network system. It monitors traffic and keystrokes and makes a backdoor into the system for the hacker's use. A special feature of rootkits is, being well masked they often hide their presence from virus scanners. A scanner specialized in this type of malicious programs can only help you to solve the issues.

Even though a few of modern virus scanners are comes bundled with rootkit scanner, a standalone scanner specialized in this category will be useful for most of us. It removes these types of pests and repairs manipulated drivers, registry, system files and process.

The new Panda Anti-Rootkit will be able to detect and deactivate known and unknown pests from your computer. The program is freeware and no installation required. Just unzip and run. You can also enable a deep scan (required system restart).

1. Capable of deactivating unknown rootkits. With this new version you'll be able to deactivate all rootkits. By default you'll be presented with deactivation of known rootkits plus the option to deactivate any unknown rootkits found on your system.
2. Deletes registry keys transparently. Previously it was only deleted the necessary registry keys to deactivate the rootkit and prevent it from functioning. Some leftover keys made some users worry about incomplete deactivation. Version 1.08 now transparently deletes all rootkit associated registry keys for piece of mind.
3. Cleaner interface.The new version have cleaned the results window for a more efficient use of available space. Now a mouse-over a detected object will present you with its type (file, process, ADS, registry, etc.).
4. Various improvements have also been made to the disinfection of unknown rootkits, some false positives reported by some of you, and more deactivation routines.


  1. Thank you so much.
