Pre-defined Scan Task For Rootkits

Since the Rootkit Scan is a system-wide scan, Bitdefender shouldn't ask to add target for Rootkit Scan. It is a wastage of time, I think, because first it scan all files and then for Rootkits probably.

I know that Rootkit always infect the system partition or the MBR and most Rootkits are dropped by Trojans. So re-design the scanning method that also scan for Trojans etc instead of asking Scan Targets e.g separate pre-defined Scan Task for Rootkits only.


  • Rootkits install their drivers in the system, for its protection and concealment, so the check for rootkits, should be a priority. IMHO
