I have having a devil of a time removing a series of "ZW" rootkits.  The first one is ZACreateKey, which is somehow hooked to spzr.sys.   I need a solution to this or do I just do a low level format on the drive and resinsall XPP.  The issue is that more than likely there are other PCs on the network that also are infected.   So....I need a quick & dirty rootkit revealer and a rookit remover.   Any suggestions would be most appreciative and welcomed.

Sorry...but in your opinion is it just easier to low-level format the drive and start again with XP-SP2 and reload all apps.   I am just not comfortable knowing that all the rootkits have been disabled, delelted or quarantineed.   Again, many thanks for your comments.

I would Try Gmer and or IceSword.
Gmer is good at detecting rootkits and so is IceSword which is a highly advanced highly advanced rootkit scanner.
Usually rootkits are flagged in red but caution is needed as some legit tools' drivers are also flag in red. Icesword also detects hidden as well as non-hidden running processes so check every running processes.
It also lets you save logs so you can post the logs here if you need assistance with the log.

I would also try Combofix as it also detects rootkits and mbr modification and will autofix it and also replaced patched files if a replacement is available and specially if RC is installed.

When using just one rootkit scanners and killing the suspect rootkit you need to make sure that all related files including the loading point are removed before rebooting so the rootkit won't return.

Reformat is also another option I would do easily since I have all my program's discs and no backing up of files since all of my important data is stored in another drive.
