SDT Cleaner

SDT Cleaner is a tool that intends to clean the SSDT (system service descriptor table) from hooks.

  • The SDT Cleaner allows you to clean hooks installed by Anti-Virus and Firewalls.
  • This little tool (in this first release) tries to collect info from your current kernel and then switches to kernel land and if there are any hooks in SSDT, this tool will replace them with the original entries.


  • In this first release, you'll just need Windows XP.
  • I'm planning to add support for Windows 2000 / 2003.
