Our Review:

Kaspersky TDSSKiller is our Editors' Choice. It has an easy to use GUI, fast scan times, great detection rate and is user friendly.

TDSS Killer managed to detect and remove all modern rootkits tested (TDSS, Zeus, TDLV4, etc). The only down side is TDSS Killer seems to have a narrow range of the rootkits it detects but hopefully more types will be added over time. If more strains are added this may become the definitive tool for removal of rootkits.

In my testing what it’s designed to scan for it finds every time and removes it easily and positively. The positives far outweigh the negatives on this one. TDSS Killer also includes 64-bit functionality which is a huge plus.
