2. Kaspersky TDSSKiller
Kaspersky TDSSKiller is probably one of my top picks for this task. Not only is it great at detecting rootkits, it has an incredibly simple to use interface and is lightning fast at scanning. Although Kaspersky TDSSKiller might be a bit more limited on the amount of rootkits it can find, its success rate outshines most other tools. This tool should be used in conjunction with other rootkit and anti-virus tools.
