The Good

It is portable, which allows updating on a clean computer before running it on an infecting machine, thus ensuring that it works with the latest signatures.

You can create a restore point before deleting any files from your computer.

The Bad

The application is currently in beta stage of development.

The Truth

Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit makes for a very useful utility in the fight against rootkits. Apart from its ability to remove this type of malware it is also equipped with a tool (FixDamage) that can fix damage caused by malware (restores critical system services, enables Windows Update and the firewall).

Despite it's beta software, Smokey's Security Forums recommend Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit Beta.
