Trend MicroTrend Micro Rootkit Buster Beta 5.0 – a free tool to detect rootkits

Trend Micro has announced a new version of the free product Rootkit Buster (Rootkit). C this easy-to-use, reliable and high-performance tool, you can detect rootkits – malicious applications carefully hide their tracks in the system. The main innovation presented in a new version of Rootkit Buster Beta 5.0, is the ability to detect potentially dangerous changes in the MBR (Master Boot Record).

Most existing tools for the detection of rootkits are bulky and not too fast programs targeted at advanced users and professionals. Product Trend Micro Rootkit Buster, available for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows, sets itself apart from many of his “brothers.” The application’s interface is extremely simple and straightforward. All available functions are grouped in a single window. Tab «Log», as you might guess, provides access to the journal in which you can find a detailed report on the results of the audit. A tab «Scan» will configure the scan settings and select one of the key areas of the system (Files or Master Boot Records, Services and Kernel Code Patches) for verification.

After following these simple steps, click “Scan Now”. Rootkit Buster will scan the selected areas and self-liquidates all malicious programs if any are detected. The developers claim that the operation takes only a few seconds. Unfortunately, such an impressive performance there is a downside. The creators of the product had to sacrifice a thorough check, Rootkit Buster is able to detect threats only in specific areas and do not allow for a full system scan. For this reason, the product is unlikely to be considered as a substitute for traditional, a regularly updated anti-virus.

Running the operating system Windows Vista, Windows7 and 8, and is available for download at the developer’s site –
