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.
