[Freeware] Kaspersky TDSSKiller – Detect and remove common rootkits

Posted In Antivirus - By Techtiplib on Friday, February 28th, 2014 With No Comments »

Kaspersky TDSSKiller is a handy portable rootkit remover tool that can detect and remove both known and unknown rootkits (known infections, though (TDSS, Sinowal, Whistler, Phanta, Trup, Stoned)..).

Kaspersky TDSSKiller also looks for suspicious objects, like hidden files or services, that may indicate some other form of malware has infested your PC. This rootkit remover tool provides a very quick and easy way to detect rootkits!

Important notes: 

  • You do have to be careful with TDSSKiller, though, as occasionally it will identify legitimate files as suspicious. So don’t automatically assume that every “suspect object” is actually a rootkit: head off to Google, search for the file name, and try to find out more about it first.
  • And even attempting to repair or remove a genuine rootkit can be problematic, and may damage your PC to the point that it won’t boot. Be sure you know how to handle that, and have all your data backed up, before you click on the Quarantine or Delete button.
