Which anti-malware should you use when removing a virus or malware? Here’s a list if removal is tough. These programs can be used for system maintenance. You should use cleaners such as Glary or CCleaner to clean your computer first. So boot into safe mode and uncheck all startup items (NOT process) by typing msconfig in the run line. Then run these programs when removing a virus / malware.
Often you will have to use ComboFix, SmitFraud, Superantispyware Portable or Microsoft Safety Scanner to remove malware. Another great tool often overlooked is OTL. OTL removes stubborn viruses and cleans your computer thoroughly.
Microsoft now has a Safety Scanner that helps to remove Malware and Viruses. At approximately 70 mb, the Safety Scanner comes in both 32bit and 64bit. An excellent utility to download and run on your computer or an infected computer. MSS expires (for a good reason – I’ve seen people scan a computer and say that it is clean but the file was old -thus the virus was not detected) every 10 days.
Remember to run an anti-virus on your computer and to keep it up-to-date!
