I just have a question regarding 2 of OldTimer's anti-malware tools.

 

Is there a difference between the OldTimer Clean-It process and the OldTimer Move-It's CleanUp! process?

 

And if there is a difference, what's the difference?

OTC (previously OTCleanIt) and OTM's (Formerly OTMoveIt3) cleaning routines are essentially the same...specifically look for downloaded files and folders created by various specialized fix tools used during malware removal.

When OldTimer renamed OTC, he created new cleanup routines and used them in all his tools individual cleanup routines. The clean button was incorporated into OTM and other tools so users would not need to download a separate tool.
