 RegRun Warrior & UnHackMe ...
So as I told Comixion early this morning ... around 4:30am my time ... I had a very stubborn laptop infected with a nasty malware known as msa.exe. I had a very difficult time trying to remove it manually. My customer didn't have a recovery disk and I didn't want to back EVERYTHING up because there was just way too much stuff on this laptop. In addition, they were just traveling through Tok. Gotta love those tourists!!

So thank goodness for Greatis Software's RegRun Warrior & UnHackMe. A very efficient and exacting rootkit removal tool. After many years of trying literally tens of many malware removal software programs, this one seems to be above the rest. It found that msa.exe right off the bat and then a bunch more. In addition, it has a nice interface and its easy to use. For only $14.95, I was able to get rid of that nasty malware in a lot shorter time than I would have had I kept going with manual file deletion. It's almost next to impossible to get rid of those nasty rootkits within the file system.

I will be informing the owners that they need protection when they let their grandkids get on their computer. Bad grandkids!! :mrgreen:

You sure do have alot of customers who peruse the pR0n sites alot. ;)

Really though, don't you hate that? I have seen it time and time again. Friends and Family who want to know why their PC is so F'ed up. And when I look they have all this BS SW that they downloaded out of ignorance or curiosity, or both. 50 million prpgrams running in the background etc etc. You know the type. Geez.

D-Champ ... I hadn't heard of them before last night. However, I did some research and found that they have a great reputation. What I like is that after you run their scan, you can submit the report that is generated and they tell you how to remove many of the problems. Very much like HiJackThis. But what's really neat is the CD that starts up and monitors the boot-process of the operating system and it detects the rootkit trying to auto-start. It stops it and secludes it and then you are able to delete it on the next reboot. So you can either let the process delete the malware or you can try to delete it manually, but I don't know why anyone would, if it can be done automatically ... :confusion-shrug:

Im not exactly sure it does the same thing, but Avira does have a "safe-boot" option, which increases the boot time by a few sec, but its supposed to detect viruses and kits when you start up the os.

Yes it does. It "watches" the boot process and stops anything that is suspicious in the auto-start sector. I am not sure how much time it adds to the boot process, but it didn't seem to be much.

I personally stand by MalwareBytes. Always seems to do a great job.

MalwareBytes failed to pickup a Trojan-downloader/root-kit on a computer at the local Clinic here in Tok. The Staff had been going to sites that I think were not medically justified :mrgreen: ... I couldn't tell which ones, but nonetheless, Malwarebytes didn't work. I personally like this new software because of the ISO image that burns to a CD and runs prior to boot-up and then "watches" the boot-process. I used to use Trojan Hunter, but I thought of trying this new program. It seems to work really well.
