A rootkit is a stealthy malware program that hides itself from the operating system of your computer. Its processes are not visible in Task Manager or in the start programs. Most anti-virus and anti-spyware don’t catch rootkits. Spy Sweeper by Webroot has a rootkit tool in its Advanced Options. If you would like Ducktoes to install Spy Sweeper on your computer and configure it to search for rootkits, please call (403) 287-0105. AVG by Grisoft has a free rootkit remover.
