    Do you have any info that I can actually understand?
    A rootkit is a stealthy type of software, typically malicious, designed to hide the existence of certain processes or programs from normal methods of detection and enable continued privileged access to a computer.[1] The term rootkit is a concatenation of "root" (the traditional name of the privileged account on Unix operating systems) and the word "kit" (which refers to the software components that implement the tool). The term "rootkit" has negative connotations through its association with malware.

    Rootkit installation can be automated, or an attacker can install it once they've obtained root or Administrator access. Obtaining this access is a result of direct attack on a system (i.e. exploiting a known vulnerability, password (either by cracking, privilege escalation, or social engineering)). Once installed, it becomes possible to hide the intrusion as well as to maintain privileged access. The key is the root/Administrator access. Full control over a system means that existing software can be modified, including software that might otherwise be used to detect or circumvent it.

    Only you can decide if it's worth it, but if you value your personal files or maybe important information such as passwords and the like.
    Then, yes.

    Sick. I'll have to look into that even more. Maybe even try making one myself.

    Yeah I am using a cracked version. The only thing I don't like about it is the fact it blocks a lot of programs/hacks that are not viruses, doesn't let me install or download certain files because they are viruses even though they are not and it updates like every second day..

    I have a great one, it's called: Not downloading viruses.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    Used to use AVG untill it detected the win32 folder as a virus and deleted it,after i reinstalled the OS i made smarter choices -definitely

    MSE if you want a good free AV
    And Malware bytes if you want the extra support by professional people,and the rapid updates!
    Chameleon is great and also helped me tons of times on other infected machined it just costs a bit..
