Malwarebytes does not recommend checking rootkits with its default settings when scanning so I did not. Why would this be recommended or should I check it anyways? I think not. Could it be that it would require much more time to check this pesky malware and the extra time needed would not be worth it?
It should be noted that I also have Microsoft Security Essentials and Webroot Secureanywhere endpoint protectoin (webroot being a closed system managed by Click for Support) whcih may presumably be monitiring rootkits already. I am not sure? Thanks for any help!
