    "Awesome Free Tool !"

    July 30, 2012  |   By sachi_india

    Version: Rootkit Buster 1.6

    Pros

    Just used it to detect rootkit, that neither norton nor Kaspersky could. It also found a virus n cleaned but norton found another virus that this missed

    Cons

    While it dectected rootkit it wasnt able to disinfect it, atleast better than kaspersky and norton and all those other tools around

    Summary

    Strongly recommend it - you can also try tons of other free tools trend micro has - check their site at http://emea.trendmicro.com/emea/products/personal/free-tools-and-services/

    "Poor Design"

    December 2, 2011  |   By pcrepairguy35

    Version: Rootkit Buster 1.6

    Pros

    Finds alot of stuff

    Cons

    if only what it found was actually rootkits it reveals everything hidden on computer not just root kits Just did a scan and came back with 3316 results if i wanted to fix all would have to select each one at a time who has time for that where is the select all button at then tried to fix a few a program just disappeared What a waste of 2 hrs watching it scan

    Summary

    Trendmicro is known for better software that this Get rid of it fix it and bring it back later This software is making you look bad. I'm a pc tech and this is junk

    "SAVED ME WHEN A ZERO DAY VIRUS TOOK OVER MY MACHINE!"

    January 27, 2011  |   By jackrbike

    Version: Rootkit Buster 1.6

    Pros

    I was attacked by what I later learned was a rootkit virus; disabled my antivirus program; couldn't access online scanners/websites. Download this to thumb drive. Ran it. It cleaned my machine and I was able to proceed.

    Cons

    How can I criticize something that saved me?

    Summary

    Download it; save it in a folder but change the name of the exe so bugs don't scan your machine to delete known effective malware exe files. Know where you keep it.

    January 10, 2009  |   By pistei

    Version: Rootkit Buster 1.6

    Pros

    don't know

    Cons

    well, if it would install, that'd help

    Summary

    wont let me run it. says i have to be administrator. i AM administrator and logged in as such. there are too many good rootkit products around to use, rather than try to kick this thing in the head to get it started.
