A rootkit scanning, and removing tool is needed.

A rootkit removal tool is very much needed. My supposed "platinum" subscription was not able to detect a rootkit malware hidden in an .iso file when I scanned it before, an after unpacking it. After my computer was attacked, Trend Micro could detect the various malicious .exe files the rootkit had written on my system, but was not able to remove them successfully because it could not detect the original threat, and the malicious .exe files kept regenerating, and copying themselves. It took a registry cleaner, and a Rootkit scanning, and removing tool from another company (Kaspersky Labs) to get my computer back.
