Best rootkit cleaner if I have to slave drive in another system

I have a posible rootkit infection and really don't want to wipe the drive clean. I am getting a blue screen on startup and cannot get into windows. I looked up the BSOD and seems like it could be a rootkit. I would like to slave the drive in another system and scan it for a rootkit. I already tried slaving it and running Vipre and it didn't detect anything. Maybe i should try supperantispyware.
any other suggestions?

Try these when system is live. If a rootkit is detected(patched system file).
They should be able to replace the file.
Run TdssKiller and Hitmanpro.

If still having issue run Combofix and post log here

IF slaving the drive or using a boot cd, keep the logfiles.
