"Confirmed the box had a rootkit"

January 13, 2014  |  By ggodwin

 |  Version: RootkitRevealer 1.71

Pros

Raised the probability from 50% to 95% probability that I had a rootkit by sheer volume of hits

Cons

No obvious guide to use- documentation scant when found (kb on MS website) Go to MS Tech website and search Rootkit Revealer

Summary

Good methodology for finding rootkit activity, just not good on identifying which rootkit for hacker at my level

"1.71 won't run in Windows 7"

June 08, 2011  |  By Alan Mintaka

 |  Version: RootkitRevealer 1.71

Pros

Don't know - I couldn't run it

Doesn't run in Windows 7. I tried running it first as Admin, then in XP SP3 compatibility mode. Just doesn't run.

If you're running Windows 7, don't waste your time with this program.

"One of Mark's best pieces of work"

March 20, 2011  |  By im_davy

 |  Version: RootkitRevealer 1.71

Pros

Super fast and detailed

Cons

Susceptible to being auto-killed by spy-ware and couldn't get it to run on x64 systems.

Summary

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that most people below have no idea what this is for. It is simply a rootkit revealer, it does not scan for spyware or malware or give you any information beyond revealing items on your computer that you cannot see. It's up to someone who knows what they are doing to tell what has been found. This found a virus that eluded all scanners I have tried and it found it right away. I had to determine that it was the virus though, this doesn't claim to have that feature and it certainly does not have a feature like that. It does exactly what it is supposed to. A trojan did auto-kill this repeatedly and it won't open on win 7 ent x64. It did work on x86 though.
