Rootkit Removal

Rootkit scanning, detection, and removal

Our free Virus Removal Tool scans, detects, and removes any rootkit hidden on your computer using advanced rootkit detection technology.

Rootkits can lie hidden on computers, remaining undetected by antivirus software. Although new rootkits can be prevented from infecting the system, any rootkits present before your antivirus was installed may never be revealed.

Easy to use

Sophos Virus Removal Tool scans your computer and lets you safely and reliably detect and remove any rootkit that may have hidden itself on your system.

  • Download the tool, run the program, and put the Virus Removal Tool on your desktop
