What Is A Rootkit?


What Is A Rootkit?

If you’ve heard of the Sony/BMG fiasco with rootkits installed on some of their CD’s, or you’ve seen things like “Anti Rootkit” in your anti-virus program and are wondering what that is, this article explains the concept.

I discuss the history of rootkits, some popular ones, and what exactly it is.  Plus I touch on how to detect and remove them.

For a little more information on the removal of rootkits, please check out the link at the end of my article.  I’ve added it here as well.

Free Anti-Rootkit Applications for Windows.

Have a great day:)
Patrick.
