"The BEST. Really disinfected my laptop."

April 16, 2007  |  By gayatrilsvgs

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Rootkit Free 1.1.0.42

Pros

My laptop was infacted with some spyware

very badly and was getting so many poppops/

banners. So i used, 1.AdAware SE free edition, 2. Norton Internet security 7,

3. Free online tool 'Housecall' from Trend

Micro, 4. Spyboat S&D , 5.a-squard free but

non of them could remove the spyware hiding

somewhere in the registry.(They all very good software and i use many of them regularly). So while trying to find some

other software, i luckily found this one.It detected about 5-6 infections in the

registry and after deleting them right away,i don't have any poppops/banners.

Very Good software. KP

Cons

The only thing made me little confused is,

after detecting spyware(root) in the registry, it warned me that if i delete those root(?) , my systeam may not work properly if any necessary program was using

to run the systeam. But,i had no choice other then to delete since other softwares

couldn't remove the spyware.After deleting

it, i don't have any problem running my

laptop.

It would be 100% perfect if the software

can explain better that if it's safe or

unsafe to delete the detected entries.

"Misleading! This Does Not Download AntiRootKit Tool !"

November 17, 2010  |  By 02befree

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Rootkit Free 1.1.0.42

Pros

AVG is a great product, but this download is just a trial version of AVG Internet Security 2011

Cons

This is not AVG Anti- Rootkit - go to Softpedia to download the real file.

"This is a reassuring addition to computer security."

September 08, 2010  |  By Peter Lisheen

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Rootkit Free 1.1.0.42

Pros

It deals with an area of security from which I didn't have specific protection.

Cons

I don't really understand the problem, so am not a judge of how effective a solution this is.

Summary

I experienced no problems, and am always reassured by additional protection from a respected supplier.

"A good safety net."

February 25, 2008  |  By rundmv

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Rootkit Free 1.1.0.42

Pros

I don't know a whole lot about Root-kits, but have installed this program to use as a safety net. It hasn't found any so far, and I will take that as a good sign.

Cons

There is no way for me to tell how effective this program is without tempting fate.

"useful anti rootkit scanner."

January 29, 2008  |  By edred.uk

 |  Version: AVG Anti-Rootkit Free 1.1.0.42

Pros

User friendly & has 2 levels of scanner.

Cons

It has never detected a rootkit on my P.C. so there has to be some suspicion about its integrity & efficiency.
