The main difference between UnHackMe and other antirootkit software is the detection method. UnHackMe tries to detect the hidden rookits
by watching the computer from early study of the boot process till the normal Windows mode. Most modern antirootkit programs try to detect
the rootkits when the rootkit is already active. They use the very complex methods for detecting hooked system functions. But the rootkit authors creates the new tricks and the process repeats.
# Unique detection method.
Antirootkits tries to detect rootkits in the Normal Windows mode. But if a rootkit uses DKOM technology antirootkits will have a lot of problems
in detection. UnHackMe uses the rootkit's weakness. The rootkits need a way to auto start after computer reboot. UnHackMe watches the Windows boot process from early stage till the normal mode. UnHackMe detects rootkits and other dangerous programs as well.
Other antirookits software often cause the Windows blue-screen-of-death during rootkit detection. Antirookit use the kernel mode software and each error or incompatibility with hidden rootkit will cause immediate BSOD (blues screen of death).
Also your antirootkit can conflict with installed legitimate device drivers on the user computer. There are a lot of computer configurations and the software authors could not test all of them for compatibility with their software. UnHackMe uses the kernel drivers only for making snapshots of the system state and UnHackMe is very stable.
# Detection speed.
Antirootkits need a lot of time to check all hard drives, memory and the registry. A user needs to start the programs manually. UnHackMe automatically detects for rootkits every Windows boot. It takes about 5-7 seconds only.
Antirootkits are often conflicts between each other. UnHackMe is fully compatible with antiviral and antirootkit software. A user can use UnHackMe and other antiviral/antirootkit software at the same time.
# Not only rootkit remover.
Antirootkits could not protect against Trojans and malware. UnHackMe removes Trojans/adware/spyware as well as rootkits.
