I would use a lot of other utilities before Dr. Web CureIt to be honest. More efficient scanners exists and have a better effectiveness ratio (is effectiveness even an English word?).

Yes, Aura :P

To be honest I use ESET Online Scanner more often.

Actually, Dr. Web CureIt has been one of the most reliable scanners over the years I have been involved in malware removal but it can take hours to complete. It's only recently that it has been surpassed in favor of others which perform a bit faster.

Thank you Alex :) Yes, ESET Online Scanner is also my to-go scanner. Depending of the system its ran on, it can take a long time to complete but its really, really effective. Same for Kaspersky's one.

Kaspersky's Online Scanner was the preferred one for many years too. When they pulled it a few years ago, only then did ESET become the top choice.
