Sophos Anti-Rootkit 1.4 has been released

Removing rootkits without compromising system integrity is particularly challenging and needs to be done with care.

Our free software, Sophos Anti-Rootkit, finds and removes any rootkit that is hidden on your computer.

What is a rootkit?
The term rootkit is used to define a Trojan (or technology) used to hide the presence of a malicious object (process, file, registry key, network port) from the computer user or administrator.

Here are some key features of Sophos Anti Rootkit:

# Scans running processes, windows registry and local hard drives for rootkits.
# Identifies known rootkits and selects, by default, files for removal which will remove the rootkit component of the malware without compromising OS integrity.
# Allows users to remove unidentified hidden files, but does not allow removal of essential system files when hidden by an identified rootkit.
# Once the user has run a scan, the screen prompts the user through the necessary steps until every rootkit has been removed.
# Users can switch between the GUI and command-line functionality.
# Both context sensitive and command-line help are available.
