Trouble:

Rootkits are one of the biggest security and identity theft tools which can infect your PC. Most of the good and reliable Anti-Virus tools have anti-rootkit feature bundled in them, but if your anti-virus does not provide that safety, you must scan your computer manually for any rootkit infections using free scanning tools like – Sophos Rootkit Removal Tool

In this article I will review one more useful free rootkit scanner tool called SanityCheck which scans the rootkits and malwares on your computer. Good thing is that it is fully compatible with Windows 7 64 bit and 32 bit versions, and older versions including Windows Vista, Windows XP etc. Its a free tool for personal use.
