Trend Micro RootkitBuster is a program that will scan your computer for Rootkits. This scanner will scan for rootkits that are using the latest technology including Master Boot Record (MBR) infections.
If a Rootkit is found while scanning with RootkitBuster, the program will give you the option to remove the infection. When you do so, a folder called TMRBLog will be created in the same folder that you ran RootkitBuster from. This folder will contain a variety of logs, including backups of any Master Boot Records that it may have cleaned.
