I was wondering why no new posts were done to the following Forum. There are many new ones out there that I have not come across within the pages of that topic. Spyaway/SpyMaxx are some examples.

Many of those programs are simply variants of existing malware types. Examples are SmitFraud and Vundo, which come out with new variants regularly. If one of these problems is identified, you can use the generic instructions for them.

There are many rogue apps out there, heres a list of them:

Noone here wants to spend time writing tutorials on how to remove all of those! So ones are written for ones we see often, and the ones we do not see often can be removed by a HJT Team Member.

Many malware issues simply do not admit of a solution that fits a self-help forum, and many others require a great deal of research, development, and testing before they are posted here.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
