RootKit Buster crashes pc. Does it mean i am infected?


Recommended Posts

Hello Bobc11:

You may wish to uninstall/reinstall the application that caused the event.

If the trouble persists, a thorough test of your computer's RAM and/or hard disk drive may be indicated.


HTH :)

Sorry, but I was not specific enough, I want to check for rootkits, becuase I havent been able to recently, so I went to run that. It was a fresh download... Does MBAM detect rootkits in the MBR?

Most ARK's load a driver that does have the potential to crash a system - infected or not.

So no, just because it crashes whilst you are trying to run it doesn't mean your infected.

If your seeing specific symptoms to be worried about a rootkit, you should post in the malware removal forum and let an expert check you over.
