RootkitRevealer is a rootkit detection utility that can help in detecting system API discrepancies.

RootkitRevealer is a rootkit detection utility that can detect rootkits (hidden spyware) on the computer. It runs on Windows NT 4 and higher and its output lists Registry and file system API discrepancies that may indicate the presence of a user-mode or kernel-mode rootkit.

The software can run a manual scan of the system and offers a few options : whether to display standard NTFS and enable / disable the scan of the registry data.It successfully detects many persistent rootkits including AFX, Vanquish and HackerDefender.

An automatic scan can also be run through command line parameters , eg "RootkitRevealer -a" launch the software and automatically exits after the scan. The result consists in detecting thedifferences between the reality of the system and API (theone that Windows sees). It then displays a list of entries that seem strange to him. User can then determine whether these differences are normal or abnormal.
