I recently found the tool Trojan Remover on the site www.simplysup.com made by simply super software. CNET has a download, but has anyone heard of this one before?

Thanks.

I've not heard of nor used the software.

After doing some research, I have yet to see any strong evidence that this software has capabilities beyond that of tools such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware. Furthermore, the free trial that is offered is time-limited (30 days) after which you must register the software to continue using it, and beyond that point a yearly renewal fee is incurred. Other, well established antimalware programs such as the two mentioned above are cheaper especially in the long run as they have no renewal fee.

Again. . . without playing with the software myself I couldn't say for sure. . . but my opinion is that there are probably better alternatives.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the quick reply. Malware has missed a couple viruses that security essentials picked up, so I'm worried that the download of definitions has been compromised.

Malwarebytes anti Malware free version I don't believe is a anti virus, just a anti malware as Super anti Spyware is a anti spyware not a anti virus. That why many have a firewall, anti virus, MAM, and SAS on there computer. MAM and SAS are on demand only. Your anti virus and firewall when installed on your computer will set them self to start up when you computer starts. I hope this helps.

I quite like this software as its very light on resources and just does what its meant to.

It also gives a description what the malware that it picks up actually does.

Other software does not tend to do that.

 

It was recommended in the UK PC Pro magazine in an article some years ago and this is how i came to try it.

Good secondary scanner.

You have replied to a topic over 3 years old. You most likely are using a more current version of that program than what the OP inquired about in 2010. The vendor may have made some improvements which is why it was recommended in the UK PC Pro magazine.

In any case, Trojan Remover still is not free.

The registration fee for Trojan Remover is US$24.00*. This fee covers all database updates and future program updates for 1 year from the date of registration. The fee for renewals in subsequent years is currently US$17.00. You can install Trojan Remover on up to 4 computers for the single registration fee.
