Which anti-rootkit tool runs under Windows 7? I tried icesword 1.22 and darkspy 1.05 but both failed to start.

Icesword gives me this error:

Initialize failed[1]!

And Windows tells me that darkspy is not compatible with my Windows version.

Rootkit revealer from sysinternals and GMER are working.

GMER is the best imo, but there are others.
