Rootkit Removal Tool For Windows 7 And Older Windows Version

by Rohit Khurana on February 28, 2010



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.



Features of SanityCheck Rootkit Removal Tool include :

  • Runs on almost all Windows versions
