Trying to cleanup malware from your computer? Advanced Malware Cleaning, located on the Windows Sysinternals website, is a must watch video from Windows expert Mark Russinovich. Mark was the co-founder of Sysinternals before it was acquired by Microsoft in 2006.

Mark gives an overview of how SysInternals tools work, such as Process Explorer, along with using the AutoRuns utility,  SigCheck, and TCPView Utility to discover where malware is hiding on your computer and how to clean it. Mark talks about Rootkits and his own RootkitRevealer tool, an advanced rootkit detection utility.

Mark discusses the future of malware and how malware is becoming harder and harder to detect.
