Unlike other similar tools, Bitdefender Rootkit Remover can be launched immediately, without the need to reboot into safe mode first (although a reboot may be required for complete cleanup).
Bitdefender Rootkit Remover deals easily with 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 also cleans infections with Necurs (the last rootkit standing).
Please note that the list is a bit outdated – new rootkit families are added as they become known.
Bitdefender Rootkit Remover finds and disables several families of particularly dangerous rootkits, mostly of the sub-type called “boot-kit” – namely rootkits which mess with the boot-up process (usually by modifying the MBR) to survive between reboots and regain control of the affected machine after each startup.
Supported Operating Systems: Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit).
