Bitdefender Rootkit Remover
Bitdefender’s anti-rootkit solution is designed to check the computer for any sign of infection with this sort of malware and report it to the user.
It focuses on bootkits, digital threats that affect the system boot process by infecting the MBR (Master Boot Record), VBR (Volume Boot Record) or the boot sector. By lodging into these areas the threat gains unrestricted access to the entire machine.
Portable scan tool
The application does not require installation as it is ready for scanning immediately after download. Furthermore, the program can be run from a removable device without problems.
It has a single window and there are no configuration options to tinker with. Simply launch the tool and initiate the scan procedure.
Lightning fast verification
The entire operation should literally take a jiffy to complete because the utility looks only for known threats located in a few locations, based on their signature. There is also the possibility to eliminate the infection, and in most cases the operation requires a computer restart.
According to the developer, the list of rootkits that can be detected is updated as new threats become known.
As soon as the verification process completes Bitdefender’s removal tool returns the results, if any, in the main application window. The accompanying details include the name of the corrupted file, of the detection and the current status. If no threats have been found the application shows a new screen with a green check mark on it.
Bitdefender Rootkit Remover is simple, moves fast and it can be run from a removable storage device on any PC. It is fully functional out of the box because there are no settings to configure.
