With today’s technology and advancement, some hackers are finding possible ways to hide spyware and virus, in such a ways, that traditional antivirus products are finding hard to detect. With some spyware programs using so-called rootkits software to hide their malicious bytes within deep down in the system, so are virus writers starting to do the same thing.

F-Secure BlackLight uses a new innovation, known as the F-Secure BlackLight Rootkit Elimination Technology, to find out if your computer is infected by invisible rootkits. F-Secure BlackLight Rootkit Elimination Technology detects objects that are hidden from users and security tools and offers the user an option to remove them. The main purpose is to fight rootkits and all kinds of malware that use rootkits. The F-Secure BlackLight Rootkit Elimination Technology works by examining the system at a deep level. This enables it to detect objects that are hidden from the user and security software.

In addition, F-Secure BlackLight is able to correctly ignore non-malicious objects and alerts only on real rootkits, which makes it useful even for users without technical knowledge. It is also able to deal correctly with files that have been modified during the scanning process, which makes it possible to run it in the background without interrupting normal work.

Users who wishes to test the software can download the Trial version. This trial version of the stand-alone BlackLight will expire on 1st of May 2006. Note that, an integrated BlackLight engine has been also been included in the F-Secure Internet Security 2006 suite.
