McAfee Rootkit Detective 1.1

It will proactively detect and clean rootkits that are running on the system
McAfee Rootkit Detective is a security software solution designed to find and remove rootkits that infected your system.

The application is not an antivirus solution, so you still need to install and run an antivirus product with real-time protection and virus definitions updates; McAfee Rootkit Detective does an excellent job when it comes to getting your computer clean of running rootkits.

The application allows you to view hidden processes, hidden registry keys and values, hooked services, imports and exports, plus all running processes, thus making it possible you find the ones that may be dangerous for the computer.

There's a small “Settings” menu that allows you to configure cleaning and detection, enabling you to search for hidden files and folders inside the system drive and all fixed drives, or enable termination and renaming of hidden processes.

You don't need a superfast computer to run McAfee Rootkit Detective, and a scanning process takes just a few minutes, while the duration of the cleaning process depends on the number of malicious files found on your computer.

Beginners are strongly recommended to read the included manual because improper use of the application may break down the operating system.

As a conclusion, McAfee Rootkit Detective is a simple way to make sure your computer is running free of rootkits. And since it's so easy to use, beginners, as well as more professional users are always welcome.
