Where can I find source code for the tools mentioned on this site?
Obviously you can't get the source to MBAM, but a lot of the others tools
( RootRepeal, SDFix, ComboFix etc ), you should be able to get the code for.

Do`t think the source code is or should be made available for those tools, among others, either. Would make it to easy for the malware writers to create work a rounds.

If you're interested in examining the source code of an anti-malware program, go take a look at ClamAV, a free and open source antivirus whose source is freely available.

I'm more interested in code that finds hidden files, hidden processes, redirected OS calls.

I can assure you that the source code is unavailable through this forum to the tools you have inquired about. I can with complete confidence attest to the fact that the authors of each tool would not allow their hard work to be reverse engineered. This would, as has been stated, allow malware writers to modify their code and render the tools obsolete instantly.

And for the very same reasons stated by Animal, we will not even discuss in public forums how many of these tools specifically work.
