Googling around shown suggestion that autoruns.exe from Sysinternals even more capable then HijackThis. More interesting that Microsoft bought Sysinternals and hire its famous author Mark Russinovich so now we have officially supported signed by Microsoft software to find malware/adware. I previously mostly use procexp.exe but long time ago. Now both tools ...

I'd say finding a virus on Linux will be hard (to my knowledge, there are no Linux viruses in the wild). Rootkits are a different thing: booting from a clean medium (e.g. a live CD), and running chkrootkit would come to mind. chkrootkit is a well-known rootkit detector (I've used it in the past, many years ago – hadn't a reason to use it afterwards, luckily)...

Try ClamAV... ISPProtect uses ClamAV for its scans and it's free. But IMHO ISPProtect is the best Malware-Webserver Scanner out there. I struggled a lot with malware on one of my servers. With ispprotect I managed to locate all the malware and to close all the backdoors. And concerning the price: +- 100€ per year is nothing compared to the price/hour you ...

The anti malware program that I personally use now is SUPERAntiSpyware. They have updates everyday and has many tools alongside the program itself.

SUPERAntiSpyware (Freemium) ...
