  1. I've noticed the newest version of M-bam has an option to scan for rootkits

    & in scans Broni has requested

    Although the one in M-bam takes longer, are they basically the same thing? TIA :)

    @Tmagic650 & @Broni I know you two are busy, but are they one in the same, or not ? :)

    Yes , Accept. A stand a lone one dose better. When cleaning a computer that is highly infected. Least wise it has always for me.

    Not really saying that. Malwarebytes -Anti- Malware is a great program. Even for scanning for rootkits. I just prefer to use some stand alone programs such as TDSSkiller. When working with a highly infected computer. Both programs do the same thing. As with any cleaner. One might find something the other did not.

    Ok, I guess I should of elaborated a bit. Are the resulting scans from TDSSkiller easy to read & understand for a partial novice? I'm probably confusing myself too much now. :)
