AVG Anti Rootkit is no longer available as a stand alone product. Maybe you should post at Am I Infected.

There is no guarantee that anyone will not be infected :thumbsup: All we can do is try to protect ourselves.

These large organizations like NAI or Symantec are seeling their products for years and they dont give any guarantee :flowers:

BTW Avast! antivirus has inbuilt anti-rootkit. There are other rootkit revealers like Sysinternals anti-rootkit and Fsecure Blacklight.
