    Rootkit Revealer

    Hi Jeff,

    The Rootkit Revealer tool is already obsolete and it was originally designed for Windows XP and Server 2003. Microsoft has a scan tool, Microsoft Safety Scanner, that is designed to find and remove malware from Windows computers. For more information about
    the Microsoft Safety Scanner, you can check this
    link
    .

    For questions about Rootkit Revealer, we suggest that you visit the
    Sysinternals RootkitRevealer Forum
    for further assistance.

    Should you have further queries, feel free to post it.

  3. Rootkit Revealer

    FYI...These are a few other of the easier and safer ARKS for novice users:

    -- Note:
    Malwarebytes
    uses a proprietary low level driver similar to some anti-rootkit (ARK) scanners to locate hidden files and
    special techniques which enable it to detect a wide spectrum of threats including active rootkits,

    zero-day malware
    and malware in the wild. The anti-rootkit technology in Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 2.x/3.x is identical to that of Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (mbar).
    SUPERAntiSpyware Free offers technology to deal with rootkit infections as well. Both of these scanners are easy enough for any novice to safely
    use.

    Rootkit Revealer

    I am currently re-reading a 2012 copy of a CompTIA Security+ textbook I still have from a degree program I graduated from.

    I came across a referral to Microsofts Rootkit Revealer program.

    According to a Wikipedia about it, it is no longer being developed.

    My question is: Is there another program that took it's place?
