Remove Rootkits from Windows

A rootkit is a stealthy type of software, often malicious, designed to hide the existence of certain processes or programs from normal methods of detection and enable continued privileged access to a computer. If you are using Windows, there are many ways your PC could be affected with rootkits. Bitdefender has released a new tool, Rootkit Remover, which is a quick and easy tool for dealing with known rootkits. Bitdefender  claims that it can currently remove Mebroot, all TDL families (TDL/SST/Pihar), Mayachok, Mybios, Plite, XPaj, Whistler, Alipop, Cpd, Fengd, Fips, Guntior, MBR Locker, Mebratix, Niwa, Ponreb, Ramnit, Stoned, Yoddos, Yurn, Zegost and Necurs.
