A rootkit is a program or a program kit that hides the presence of malware in the system. A rootkit for Windows systems is a program that penetrates into the system and intercepts the system functions (Windows API). It can effectively hide its presence by intercepting and modifying low-level API functions. Moreover it can hide the presence of particular processes, folders, files and registry keys. Some rootkits install its own drivers and services in the system (they also remain "invisible").
Kaspersky Lab has developed the TDSSKiller utility that allows removing rootkits. The utility can be run in Normal Mode and Safe Mode. It detects and removes the following malware: malware family Rootkit.Win32.TDSS; bootkits; rootkits.

Thanks"September 19, 2013 | By celita37 | Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.18 Prosabsolutely noneConsImmediately my crashed and a blue screen popped up and now I can do absolutley nothing with my computer and probably everything is now lost all because I choose Cnet and their phony virus removal software that is really even more damaging to your computer. The first button on the top of the screen is not the Kapersky TDSS Killer software. All I am saying is that don't even bother to waste you time with this product. It is not working to say the least and will ruin you computer. BEWARE!Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful?

Was easy to useConsA little hard to understand what is going on bu maybe not for teckiesSummaryIt worked well once I figured out that Essentials and Norton wanted to quarantine it....Reply to this review Was this review helpful? (1) (0) 1 stars"DANGER! IT'S A VIRUS ITSELF!! DO NOT INSTALL IT OR ELSE"May 24, 2013 | By TwistedTwerp | Version: Kaspersky TDSSKiller 2.8.17 ProsNone, it's a pathetic piece of software.ConsUnless you are an experienced software engineer you will NOT be able to remove Kaspersky from your computer. If you use Windows to Uninstall, Kaspersky lays eggs that upon rebooting hatch and reinstall the software all by itself. That folks IS the definition of MalWare/Viruses.Reply to this review Read reply (1) Was this review helpful? (0) (1) You are logged in as .
