Rootkit, a malicious software, manipulates the components of Microsoft Windows operating system to conceal how it harms computer. It hides drivers, processes, and registry entries from tools that use common system application programming interfaces (APIs).

Download and run the Trend Micro Rootkit Buster to scan hidden files, registry entries, processes, drivers, services, ports, and master boot record (MBR) to identify and remove rootkits.

This tool is only designed to scan your computer for rootkits. For other types of threats, use your Trend Micro Security instead.
