A new tutorial titled Using Blacklight to detect and remove Rootkits from your computer was added by Bleeping Computer. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

Rootkits are scary and becoming a larger and larger menace to our computers every day. In the past if our computers were infected with a piece of malware, we simply removed it and we were clean of the infection. Now that rootkits are commonly bundled with other malware, this cleaning process has become even harder to do. This tutorial will cover how to use F-Secure Blacklight to scan your computer for rootkits and help you to remove them.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
