    AVG Anti-Rootkit

    Hello -

    Updates for AVG Anti-Rootkit Free will no longer be available. So, is it worth while to run it periodically anyway?

    Thank you.

    It won't hurt to run it, but you might be better of with a product that is still updated. For example, Spybot Search & Destroy has started including rootkit scans this month (March, 2008), and its creator is developing a stand-alone rootkit scanner - see News.

    By the way, many anti-virus programs now also include protection against rootkits, so you may not need a separate scanner.

    Thank you very much, Hans.

    RootAlyzer looks good, even though in Beta.

    It would be helpful if you'd provide a link so others might read it, pass it on, etc.

    Thanks. There is no mention of this at AVG Free Advisor - AVG Anti-Rootkit Free.

    The closing tag should be <!t>[/url], not <!t>[url]. (I already posted a working link higher up in this thread, in <post:=703,832>post 703,832</post:>)
