I have a current subscription for PC Tools Spyware Doctor which scans regularly. Recently I ran Malwarebytes Antimalware and it found one Trojan. However I do not know if these programs can detect a rootkit. I know combofix is a powerful tool, but keep seeing warnings not to use it without supervision. Last year a friend was helping me and ran a couple tools, afterwhich it took three days of correspondence with youall to get my computer running again. My question: is my computer clean with what I've done, or would running a more powerful tool potentially find an infection.
