[Discontinued] RootAlyzer Portable

Application: RootAlyzer
Category: Utilities
Description:

Rootkits are a technology that is more and more often used by malware to hide themselves on system level, making themselves invisible to standard tools. Our plugins help Spybot-S&D to detect this malware, and our RootAlyzer shows you anything that uses certain rootkit technologies, even if it's not in Spybot-S&Ds detection database.

The RootAlyzer is a single tool which goes through the file system, the registry and process related lists. When you start RootAlyzer, it performs a very quick scan of a few important places, taking about a second on modern machines. To check the full system, you have the possibility of choosing a Deep Scan.

[Link removed. Reason: discontinued; built into Spybot 2 Beta.]

Release Notes:
0.3.4.47 Development Test 1 (2010-05-21): Initial release

Notes:

  • Administrator rights are required for this app to run
  • For personal use only
  • Bundled with permission
I was told that a while back PortableApps.com had been granted permission to bundle Spybot as a portable application. I wanted to verify this was true myself (since nobody else has packaged it yet, I figured why not possibly do it myself), and ask if this applied to any of your other utilities (RegAlyzer, FileAlyzer, etc.). I'm quite busy with classes at the moment so Spybot Portable might take a bit, however your other utilities seem to be much easier to package for the time being. If I was told wrong and we have not been given permission to do so, then I apologize for not further checking first.

Hello Kenny,

There should not be a problem with this, as long as you make clear that this is only for the private use. Smile

Best regards
Sandra

just tested this on XP and windows7

on XP I see the text and green checks when the program gets turned on (quick scan window):

when I start up the program in windows7 I see the quick scans window but there's no text or green checks. I can still run the deep scans.

the program works, there just seems to be some graphics issue

Yeah, that seems to be a

Yeah, that seems to be a problem in the base app. I don't think they've updated it for Windows 7 (and I don't expect them to soon with them working on Spybot 2.0).

Dropping.

Since this is integrated into Spybot 2.0, I will be dropping support for this as soon as Spybot 2.0 is out of beta.
