Kaspersky TDSSKiller

CNET Editors' review

Rootkits burrow into the roots of your Windows operating system, hiding and intercepting Windows API functions, often modifying them for their own purposes, which are seldom benign. TDSSKiller by Kaspersky Labs can find and remove rootkits, either in Normal Mode or Safe Mode. It targets malware where it lurks, including boot records.

We extracted and ran TDSSKiller, which immediately found an available update. Kaspersky strongly advised downloading the update before we scanned our system; we strongly agreed. This involved downloading and extracting a completely new copy of this compact, portable app, but that probably took less time than most ordinary updates. The tool's interface is about as simple as they come: one big Scan button, plus buttons to Change Parameters, view a Report, and Close the program. But the interface also describes what TDSSKiller targets, including a variety of known rootkits as well as rootkit-like anomalies, among them Sinowal, Stoned, Whistler, Trop, Cmoser, Pihar, and others, with new threats added by updates. We clicked Start Scan. TDSSKiller scanned 445 objects in our system in 13 seconds and found zero threats. That's what we expected it to find, but it's still a relief to see a clean report. We clicked Change Parameters, which let us select or deselect both Services and drivers and Boot sector for scanning (both are selected by default). The program only offers two more options: Verify file digital signatures and Detect TDLFS file system. A button lets you quickly restore the default settings.

Even though TDSSKiller found no malware to remove from our system, it generated a detailed report of every step of the recent operation. While we're glad we didn't need Kaspersky TDSSKiller, we don't doubt its ability to find what it claims it can, in part because we've had good experiences with other free utilities from Kaspersky Labs, but also because it's worked well for users who need it to clean up their systems. We're just glad it's available, and happy to run it on our supposedly clean system, even if only to prove it's clean. Come to think of it, that may be the best reason of all.

    "False positives, probably, rendered my PC unusable."

    Summary

    I have used TDSSKiller for a long time along with many security products I have used for years. I used TDSSKiller again on April 15th. It showed a number of supposed detections of supposed serious infections. I recklessly and foolishly followed the advice to delete them. My PC was rendered unusable. I now have a different drive installed and a fresh Windows install.

    Not all is shown here below.
    Only a little copied and pasted.
    The file name is shown, and also
    the very top and very bottom of it.

    "FIXED Problem in 30 seconds !!!"

    March 22, 2013  |   By Tim_ha

    Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.7

    Pros

    downloaded very fast and ran very fast, after spybot S&D/Malwarebyte/and windows live essentials failing to find the problem.

    Cons

    not noticed any

    Summary

    I was suffering from what I think was a rootkit virus that affected my volume mixer causing constant radio channels live streams and advertisements to be played. Thinking I would need re install after every other program failed to sort this, if I started with this it would of been fixed in under 30 seconds very impressive software! already ive noticed my pc speed up again too.

    "Fixed my Blue Screen of Death!"

    March 5, 2013  |   By Thankful_Guy

    Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.7

    Pros

    Got a virus that AVG detected but could not completely remove after several scans and restarts. Tried to download adaware but as soon as it would load, the computer would crash with the blue screen of death. I searched google and found out that this program would fix the problem. Quick install, quick scan, easy fix! Scanned with AVG after and it no longer found the several "root kits" it had before.

    Cons

    None found. It killed the virus!

    Summary

    IT WORKS. Thanks to the creators.

    "Great program, but I hate it."

    February 5, 2013  |   By nitratenoxious

    Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.7

    Pros

    Gets rid of whatever problem your having.

    Cons

    Well, it messed up my graphics card and got rid of my Realtek audio drivers, so those are major point reductions right there.

    Summary

    Gets rid of the problem quick and easy, but if you're a gamer who cherishes your graphics card, DO NOT USE THIS PROGRAM.

    Updated on Feb 5, 2013

    Also, it messed with my Windows Media Player so I can no longer watch DVDs on my computer unless I have a different program. never use this program unless you want to freakin' kill your computer. Not even a system restore could save mine.

    "Didn't Work"

    January 15, 2013  |   By Hopeful7

    Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.7

    Pros

    Super quick download - FROM KASPERSKY, NOT HERE! Quick scan

    Cons

    Didn't track down the problem. I know it's the Google Redirect Virus, but I can't get rid of it.

    Summary

    I blame CNET. Downloaded a driver from them and along came the Google Redirect Virus. Shame on you CNET!

    "Rootkit Bufu'er"

    December 21, 2012  |   By Thirdeye386

    Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.7

    Pros

    Small download
    Light, fast install.
    Fast scan (maybe because it only has to scan the small boot sector of the drives, not positive, but it is an insanely fast scan)
    Bailed me out 100% of them time.
    You don't need Kaspersky to use this tool. And even after installing this, it does not spam you to buy Kaspersky, pretty humble on Kaspersky's part.

    Cons

    No cons, this is an excellent program! Only con I see is not more people knowing about it!

    Summary

    Bamf program!

    "The single best thing ever"

    December 13, 2012  |   By Doc-H

    Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.7

    Pros

    Worked like a charm. Bailed me out of a bad situation

    Cons

    none at all

    Summary

    DO NOT download from CNET. That's how I ended up needing this fix. I downloaded YTD from CNET and it infected my computer with a Trojan virus. Never again, but TDSSkiller saved me. Get it directly from Kaspersky.

    "irql_not_less_or_equal fixed !"

    October 25, 2012  |   By DellGirl3

    Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.7

    Pros

    Like others say here- when nothing else helped fix the blue screen of death with irql_not_less_or_equal..this worked..Thank u for helping me avoid a re-install of windows

    Cons

    Yes, the reboot shows a blank screen for a while, but don't panic..just wait for a min or two and the sys will come up fine

    Summary

    Kaspersky TDSSKiller rocks :)
    I got re-directed to try this from the below blog
