    "Ran at boot time."

    February 01, 2011   |   By hfgottlieb

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    Runs in the regular mode. Never found a rootkit.

    Cons

    Ran at boot time and it bluescreened. Had to go into safe mode and disable phooks.sys. I found out it had deleted all my system Restore files. I thought that I'd remove it manually but it starts in the files that Windows uses to boot.

    Summary

    You could use it on the computer of someone you hate but i suggest you run away from this nightmare and be afraid, very afraid .

    "Detects Rootkits quickly and remove them cleanly."

    January 30, 2011   |   By crhathaway

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    I am surprised that it seems to detect things that most other rootkit removers do not find and seems to clean them nicely. It found a bunch of critical system files with Rootkits and removed them without a problem.

    Cons

    I have heard that it knows about existing rootkits but it seldom gives me a name other then unknown rootkit.

    Summary

    Looks very good but I am still evaluating it.

    "Do not recommend"

    January 05, 2011   |   By furchesl

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    Can't think of any.

    Cons

    Could not get it to run w/o crashing my system.

    Summary

    Completely destabilized my system. Running XP, and the system would boot, but I couldn't enter my profile w/o immediate automatic system reboot. Had to enter different profile and delete the Panda EXE. Still not sure I have everything returned to normal. Highly recommend that you stay away from this product.

    "Seems to work well, but with root kits you cant be sure"

    October 09, 2010   |   By johnorford

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    It's free, doesn't need to be installed and runs quickly and easily.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can see.

    Summary

    richie58 says it didn't work. I had an almost certain root-kit grabbing my computer and when I ran Panda ARK, it behaved as richie58 describes. I reinstalled XP and no problems - Panda ARK ran. I suspect the root-kit prevented Panda from working, but any geeks out there please correct me.

    "Couldn't Get It To Work For Me"

    August 22, 2010   |   By ritchie58

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    It's a zip folder app so it doesn't install anything permanent on your drive except the zip folder of course.

    Cons

    Could not complete a scan. (See Summary)

    Summary

    I kept getting a pop up message that there is an error and the app needs to close. Thinking there might be a compatibility problem with one of my other security apps I disabled all of them including the firewall, then ran a scan with the same results. I would get to 17% of the registry scanned and get the pop up. OS: Windows XP Professional SP3

    Updated on Sep 2, 2010

    Since I couldn't get the Panda software to work I installed F-Secure Blacklight Rootkit Eliminator 2.2 to do the same job with no freezing hassles. You can download it at F-Secure's web site.

    "Great but Something happened."

    March 10, 2010   |   By nikknighten

    Version: Panda Anti-Rootkit 1.08

    Pros

    Works Great does exactly what I wanted BUT

    Cons

    A few weeks ago, after I ran it like I normally have for the past year and a 1/2, it'd scan the first category, then it'd go to the 2nd and after a few seconds I get an error from Windows saying that PAVARK.exe had encountered an error or something.

    Summary

    I liked it while it ran but now that it doesn't, I have to say it's not worth it until they fix it.
