The battle against viruses and malware has reached another level viruses have always been a problem on PCs and lately smart devices but a new type of malware called TDSS has now become a bugbear for owners. Most viruses and malware can be picked up by normal anti-virus software but TDSS is a rootkit: it changes system software to hide malware files and render itself undetectable. This is where Kaspersky TDSSKiller comes in.
Getting Rid of Rootkit Malware
Anti-virus software detects and stops viruses and malware before they are able to damage the system and corrupt files. However while some anti-virus software is able to clean an infected computer TDSS malware uses the computer's own systems to cloak its presence. This means that it will be undetectable to most anti-virus software in some cases TDSS will corrupt the program itself. The latest version of Kaspersky TDSSKiller will run on an infected system and will detect and remove TDSS malware.
Using the Software
Kaspersky TDSSKiller has proved itself very effective in tests and it is easy for those with some technical expertise to use. TDSS malware would prevent previous versions running but Kaspersky have solved this with the latest version of its product.
