UnHackMe is specially designed to detect and remove Rootkits. A rootkit is a program that a hacker uses to mask intrusion and obtain administrator-level access to a computer or computer network. The intruder installs a rootkit on a computer using a user action or by exploiting a known vulnerability or cracking a password. The rootkit installs a backdoor giving the hacker a full control of the computer. It hides their files, registry keys, and process names, and network connections from your eyes. Your antivirus could not detect such programs because they use compression and encryption of its files.
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. UnHackMe is a first bootwatch antirootkit. Most modern antirookit programs try to detect the rookits when the rookit is already active. They use the very complex methods for detecting hooked system functions. But the rookit authors creates the new tricks and this war will not have the end.
