GMER Review

A small and specialized rootkit scanner
A review of GMER by Sven Sørensen

GMER is an anti-rootkit utility which is able to find rootkits which have infected your computer. It is good to remember that rootkits are a more dangerous form of malware which even companies like Sony have used to control and spy on their users.

When you run GMER, you know realize that it will not install on to your system and is thus a portable application. It scans your system for many known rootkit infections and will search through normally hidden parts of your system like registry keys, hidden or concealed processes and even web traffic.

Another good thing to point out is the fact that unscrupulous attacked may install device drivers which may be immune to typical antivirus packages. GMER also targets this.

Overall, GMER is a useful utility which can assist in finding rootkit malware on your system which may be anywhere from relatively benign infections to serious data collection and spyware schemes.
