This way of doing things can be problematic. I hope ESET puts control back in users' hands:

Microsoft admits to signing rootkit malware

In an earlier Post, I asked if ESET checked for Rootkits in a normal scan?-

The answer was NO, and I had to do some kind of an offline scan...!  Not Happy with this! Maybe ESET will get their Act together, and start checking for Rootkits?!

 

BTW- I had Webroot before that checked for Rootkits, but it kept being disabled with No notice (slower too)!

Worse, it was a signed kernel mode driver.

Eset does scan drivers at boot time via its ELAM driver; but only non-device drivers. I assume there is no whitelisting envolved here?
