New Anti-Rootkit tools on the block

It's good to see that many Anti-Virus vendors are taking Rootkits 'seriously'! After BitDefender and AVG, now Panda, McAfee and Trend Micro have released standalone Anti-Rootkit tools. McAfee's Rootkit Detective and Trend Micro's Rootkit Buster are still in Beta stages, whereas Panda's Rootkit Cleaner is still in Alpha stage. These tools have considerably good features and detection capability. All three tools can detect and clean hidden processes, hidden drivers, SSDT hooks, hidden files and Registry entries.
