"There are loads of malware removers on the net today and most of them are lightweight applications, which usually means they’re fast and don’t have many features. One such lightweight application is Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware."This free program has some advantages. Frequent updates are available. You can update Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware every 24 hours. It will scan all drives, or any you select. It will scan specific files with a right click on the file..
Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware has consistently found trojans or keyloggers on my system. What Norton Internet Security 2009 finds but is at a loss to deal with, Malwarebytes incapacitates, shreds and occasionally blasts into oblivion. It seems to be a capable adjunct to my existing software. Notches on it's belt include Trojan.BHO.H, Trojan.Vundo, Trojan.Agent, and Trojan.Downloader.
Update: I have discovered that these items "found" by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware were not threats at all, but lures to encourage free users to upgrade to the purchased version of the software. Not nice Malwarebytes.
