Trend Micro RootkitBuster is a free tool that scans hidden files, registry entries, processes, drivers, and the master boot record (MBR) to identify and remove rootkits. By cleaning or removing hidden files, registry entries, and services, Trend Micro RootkitBuster can eliminate a wide and ever-growing number of rootkit variants. The latest version of Trend Micro RootkitBuster features an even more sensitive detection system.
The Rootkit Buster Pro is an enhanced version of the Rootkit Buster and contains Clean Boot. The Clean Boot feature triggers a scan to remove and fix malware issues before the operating system is loaded.
RootkitBuster can find rootkits by checking the following:
- Master Boot Record (MBR)
- Registry entries
- Kernel code patches
- Operating system service hooks
- File streams
