Rootkit scanning, detection and removal

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

Rootkits can lie hidden on computers and remain 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.
