    1. In 2nd method..I installed the DRIVERS and run ROOTKIT…first it tries to install drivers (in rootkit) and then it shows the following error "Failed to Install the Drivers"..
      Then I went to Device manager it shows "iris 406q USB Storage Device" with YELLOW icon, it shows that drivers are not installed successfully, after that i click the option "Update Driver Software"—>Search automatically from windows, the result was "windows could not find the driver"…
