Hey all,

I've noticed lately on several forums that Rooter is recommended and requested to be run in the preparation to posting a DDS log.

I know that it is a Rootkit Detector but other than that I cannot find anymore information regarding it.

Does anyone out there know anything about it?

Thanks

Hi E-Mu,
I have not used "Rooter" but I suspect it is in the line of rootkit detectors in the armament of malware resources. I see they use it over @ geekstogo. Not the most helpful post but I primarily want to say "hi". Hope lil' E-Mu is well.
Regards from your Study Hall friends,

Rooter is a specialized investigative tool used under the direction of some Malware Removal Experts when they feel it is warranted. Its not meant to be used as a general scanning tool for others who do not know how to interpret its logs.

I understand it is not meant for use by joe blogg without any direction and it's not my intention to run the tool.
I have spent sometime in the study hall and know of the risk and what can happen if such tools are run without prior knowledge.

I am simply looking for information relating to this tool.
I understand if you cannot give me the information but maybe a pointer in the right direction etc.
