I have not used this one, but most of the removal tools from MS seem to work well.
Cheers,

thanks for the reply John.

so far i have used it with success to remove
Rbot, Sasser, and Gaobot. No problems as of now. It works quite fast and there doesnt seem to be a need to work in safe mode.. i still do just to be on the safe side..

I generally scan my hard drive, whether using an anti-virus or anti-spyware application, in safe mode, which seems to speed up the process and unprotect any malware that hides itself in running processes. It is easy enough to get into a maintenance routine and schedule that makes all this simple.
