AVG Anti-Rootkit Free Review

A powerful rootkit remover
A review of AVG Anti-Rootkit Free by Fernando Ortega

AVG has always provided quality products to the people that need them most, and usually there's a free version available as in this case with their Anti-Rootkit software. It's a rootkit remover which will scan your computer's memory while trying to catch anything suspicious a normal user usually can't see.

Unfortunately for those looking for a free solution, AVG provides newer versions of this Anti-Rootkit with their paid solutions only.

Though this version is free, it may not be able to find the newest threats, especially on systems like Windows 7 so we recommend looking elsewhere in our [url=http://www.canadiancontent.net/tech/downloads/Rootkit-Scanners-and-Removal-Software.html]Anti-rootkit listings[/url] and possibly picking up Sophos Anti-Rootkit software instead.
