GMER is a simple yet powerful anti-malware tool that thoroughly scans your system for vulnerabilities and evidence of Rootkit activity. It has a standard explorer interface with a tabbed toolbar comprising of Processes, Modules, Services, Files, Registry, Rootkit/Malware, CMD, and Autostart.
GMER scans for:
Drivers hooking IRP calls.
Drivers hooking IDT.
Drivers hooking SSDT.
Hidden registry keys.
Hidden Alternate Data Streams.
Hidden disk sectors (MBR).
Not only does GMER scan for malware, it also allows you to monitor the following system functions: process creating, driver loading, library loading, file functions, registry entries, and TCP or IP connections. Overall, GMER is a specific tool that specializes in Rootkit removal. It is fast, relatively lightweight and does exactly what is says on the tin: a great anti-Rootkit remover.
*GMER runs only on Windows NT/W2K/XP/VISTA/7/8. Important: The developer has recommended downloading GMER with a different name to avoid detection by certain malware, which may prevent GMER from launching.
