I've just been digging around and there seems ot be precious little information about their free rootkit detector !
i.e. no advice at to whether it's best to run it in Windows normal env. or in Safe Mode !

...any views ?

most dedicated 'rootkit' (i won't confuse the issue by correcting terminology here) detectors work by detecting the effects of the stealth malware (whether that be by detecting aspects of it's implementation in the form of hooks, or by detecting the fact that certain objects that can be seen using low-level routines can't be see using high-level api calls)... this mode of operation assumes that the 'rootkit' is actually active so you'll probably want to use it in normal mode...
