I must be young or have never really used this because this is the first time I have seen this program (as far as I know) :).

GMER is a tool for advanced users and PC techs, it is too difficult to use for the everyday user since it requires manual removal actions and advanced skills or you could really destroy Windows. Its technology has been used in many other rootkit removal tools but Avast was the first to acquire license to utilize its full features. Avast aswMBR on the other hand is user-friendly and automatically removes rootkits without much user action required and much less likely to cause problems with Windows. If you already use Avast antivirus by default it scans for rootkits at every system startup at the raw disk access level therefore you would not need to use this tool if you already use Avast antivirus.

Enjoy!!:D

Don't use Avast antivirus but I have heard of that cleaner that Avast has. Works well, didn't know though that it was from GMER. Added to my collection of tools none the less. :)

What tools do you use for removing rootkits if it's not Gmer? I don't know of any better anti-rootkit(rku maybe).

McAfee Stinger also has full automated rootkit removal. It uses AV engines and rootkit removal technologies from several different AV vendors as a part of Intel's partnerships with them. It is actually one of the best now for automated rootkit removal.

Thanks.:D

GMER along with TDSS killer is one of the best rootkit removers. I have used this quite a few times.
Does version 2 have new GUI. The old GUI simply is complex. But anyway it was not intended for noobs.
Thanks for the heads up. I will be adding the new version to my USB arsenal soon.

The only problem with McAfee Avert Stinger is it takes too long and also scans and removes only commonly known malware. I given up using stinger. In some cases Pandas active scan via internet seems to be faster. Bitdefender is one of the slowest online scanners.
