A while back, maybe 6 months or so ago I once again came to trusty ol bleepingcomputer.com to look for help in removing a bug from a computer at work...I believe it might have been a redirect bug of some type but I cannot remember.

Anyway, I cannot for the life of me remember the name or address of the tool in question.

What I do remember (I think) is that it's name started with an 'A'...and it wasn't AVG or AVAST. I do believe it was a short name like 5-7 letters or something.

I am looking for this info because it was a very good tool at least for what I needed at the time as it was the only tool that removed this certain type of issue...so I want to add it to my trusty arsenal short list.

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to what the magical name might be?

TIA

Could this be it? aswMBR Starts with A, has 6 letters and is short name.

not adaware or aswmbr

I think it was a tool for removal of a green shield or some type of redirector....whichever one it was, at least at the time, nothing else would clean this one computer but it did....

I have searched for several hours and have not been able to remember or find it.

I want to say it was AV(something) but not avast....dang OCD is kicking in...I need to finger it out...lol
