Trojan Remover aids in the removal of Malware - Trojan Horses, Worms, Adware, Spyware - when standard anti-virus software either fails to detect them or fails to effectively eliminate them. Standard antivirus programs are good at detecting this Malware, but not always good at effectively removing it.
Trojan Remover is designed to work on Windows 98/ME/2000/XP/Vista. The program is not, at present, compatible with any 64bit version of Windows.
The majority of Virus and Trojan Scanners are well able to detect malicious software - Trojan Horses, Internet Worms, Adware/Spyware etc. - but are not always very efficient in removing them once they have been triggered.
Trojan Remover is designed specifically to disable/remove Malware without the user having to manually edit system files or the Registry. The program also removes the additional system modifications some Malware carries out which are ignored by standard antivirus and trojan scanners.
Trojan Remover scans ALL the files loaded at boot time for Adware, Spyware, Remote Access Trojans, Internet Worms and other malware. Trojan Remover also checks to see if Windows loads Services which are hidden by Rootkit techniques and warn you if it finds any.
Added routine to check for restrictive Windows Explorer Policies and remove any that are found.
Added new heuristic detection routine for Downloader.Agent.AWF/Trojan.Zonebac, responsible for the 'whataboutadog.com', 'whataboutarabit.com' and 'doginhispen.com' browser hijacks.
Added routines to restore program files replaced by Downloader.Agent.awf/Trojan.Zonebac, when the backup files can be located.
Added '/debug' option to the FastScan program. When invoked a detailed debug logfile is created which can be used by Simply Super Software to diagnose possible problems.
Removed the program's dependence on the external Microsoft GDIPLUS.DLL file so the program will run on Windows 9x/2000 without requiring the gdiplus.dll file to be installed.
