Alternate Data Stream files are potentially harmful and cannot be detected by most antivirus and spyware programs.

ADSTools is a program which was developed to find, make and use alternate data stream files on computers with NTFS file systems.

Here are some key features of "ADSTools":

■ Find all ADS files on your system

■ Edit ADS files

■ View ADS files

■ Copy or move an existing visible file and make it an ADS file

■ Copy or move an ADS file to a visible file location

■ Rename ADS files

■ Delete ADS files

■ Run ADS files

No other software program has the ability to work with Alternate Data Streams in the way that ADSTools can.
