I was reading an old article from Brien Posey about a head to head comparison of Antivirus products and was surprised to find another antivirus manufacturer. This article is located here
. The company is named Hauri and can be found here
I fully understand that the presense of yet another antivirus manufacturer is not impossible or out of the ordinary but the results of Brien's tests when using their software were quite positive. With that being said, I looked into Hauri and found a removal tool for a virus that has been known to be very much a pain in the butt to remove. I know this fact from first hand experience. The virus I'm referring to is "Virut". I had a "run-in" with virut earlier this year and found out first hand just how tough this one is to try to remove.
While looking at the Hauri site, I happened across their removal utilities and found a removal tool for Virut that seems to be updated quite frequently. These tools can be found here
along with quite a few others.
Now, to make myself very clear, I'm not pushing this product as being the "end-all-be-all" in antivirus products nor am I in any way, shape, or form associated with Hauri I'm just throwing this out there for the general knowledge that it seems there is an antivirus company that "may have" come up with a way to remove the Virut virus.
I'm hoping this information will be of use to someone and that hopefully it will lead to the actual removal of Virut from someone's computer in the near future. I cannot attest to it's effectiveness on removing Virut as I have not come across it again as of late.
