McAfee is the wort possible choice. And “rootkit” is a generic term, not the name of a specific virus; the rootkit that caused the last batch of problems is “Alureon.”
Most people should use the Malwarebytes anti-malware package to clean up their systems; after cleaning, save your data files elsewhere, and perform a clean install of the operating system to eliminate all trace of viruses.
Dotes – It does mention Alureon in the early part of the article, and then calls it ‘rootkit’ through the rest,.
I actually prefer Spybot S&D for my own…I haven’t had any problems between that and TeaTimer. I have never tried Malwarebytes.
