TDSSKiller 3.0.0.40

A tool to help you remove malware belonging to the family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS with the aid of simple scan and deletion operations, reports and minimal user intervention
In order to ensure smooth running of any computer, the first and foremost requirement is for it to be malware-free, and this can be achieved using an efficient antivirus solution.

Occasionally, though, a dedicated utility is needed to eradicate a specific type of threat, such as TDSSKiller which removes malware from the Rootkit.Win32.TDSS family.

Damages done to your system by rootkits

Rootkits are a special type of malware which run surreptitiously on a computer and modify the behavior of the host PC or of other installed programs. This way, they can take over certain functions and seem legitimate, and collect sensitive information.

Since these rootkits get new variants quite frequently, having a specialized tool like TDSSKiller can help users detect and remove the threat before it does any damage.

Simple scan and deletion operations

The benefit in using TDSSKiller is that users need to simply run the program and press a single button in order for the scanning process to launch. Otherwise, one would need to search the registry for entries affected by the rootkit and erase them manually.

Scan the driver digital signatures

Additionally, TDSSKiller allows users to broaden or restrict the scan, depending on their choices. For instance, if users suspect that the rootkit is hidden within the drivers on their computer, they can set TDSSKiller to scan the driver digital signatures as well.

Reports

Once the scan is over, the software app will display a brief summary of the results, and experts get the chance to analyze a detailed version of the report if they want additional information about the scan. They can also choose the action that needs to be taken once a threat is detected, if they consider it is a false positive.

Conclusion

The bottom line is that not only viruses are dangerous when it comes to computer security, rootkits can prove to be just as harmful. Nonetheless, keeping the antivirus solution correctly configured and relying on dedicated removal tools when needed will help users keep their PC free of any infection.
