How can I detect this avast rootkit?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

Hello fellows,

How can I detect this avast rootkit? I am using avast as my recent antivirus I’ve been using it for almost two months and it was working fine, but lately my computer registry system is slowing down because of the rootkit which is a malicious software that hides some processes that slows down my PC. I need some solution regarding this problem.

Dear user,

I have done a research on the internet and I have found that you can remove this rootkit by Gromozon Rootkit Removal Tool (Avast Rootkit Removal) Security Information. You can also try Kaspersky's free rootkit removal tool. Avast will no longer alert you of any rootkit if you use one of this software. You can now run an Avast full system scan.

Hope this will help you.

Thank you.
