Sounds good for cleaning out tough rootkits! Thanks.

It’s been around for some time. I heard it’s good but I never used it.

Thanks for the notification. It seemed like the development of gmer had come to an end because the website showed the previous version for a long time. But gmer is still alive and kicking with Win 8 support.

Edit. It is hanging here on Win 8 maxing out one of four cores. Adding it to the BO exclusions does not help.

It ran beautifully on my win8 x64 Intel Core 2 Quad.

but it found a root kit on my main box so i emailed the author i have not a clue what to do
something to do with a usb driver error. which i was reading about rootkits the other day and noticed my event viewer. stumbled upon this post.
now i am getting a different event viewer driver error waiting to hear from the author there maybe a fight going on i shouldn’t have any driver errors in my event viewer. So it’s usb error befor gmer.
now it’s generic driver after gmer…can’t wait to see what GMER auhor says
