I would like to know if there is anything on the market that can remove any and all infections?

 

I would pay good money for an all in one solution that could handle day zero's, adware, malware, spyware, trojans, viruses, worms, ransomware, and etc...

 

Are we forever doomed to have multiple security systems?

 

Why can't we combine the definitions of adware cleaner, superantispyware, malwarebytes, hitman, roguekiller....etc!

 

It's so tedious cleaning an infected computer. Even if you remove the drive and place it in a dock, externally. Some infections only live in RAM it seems and even safemode scans cant get them because they are file-less.

Their no magic cure all for this kind of stuff.

 

their no magic wizard company that will clean everything and fix everything in one shot.

 

If their was one, then this and other tech site/forums wouldn't exist and people in the IT industry would be pretty much be out of business for most of them that deals with this from day to day.

 

One part of the problem can be trace back to human ignorance or human error such. Other people find vulnerabilities within these errors that were overlooked and use them against others.

 

It how to world works in some ways.

 

it why their multiple AV programs and developers, multiple malware programs and developers, etc.Their no "king" out their that rules all.

 

It one big cash flow process. Someone out their making money, whether it the crime fighters or the criminals off of the innocent. It a giant industry.

 

You might be wanting to pay good money, so would I and many others to make these kind of nightmares go away and not worry about them from day to day but in the end, it will never be real since people out their can make money from the chaos it causes.

IT would still exists without the complexity of virus removal. There is a lot more to computer support than malware. I mean, somebody has to ask if you tried turning it off and on again.

Malware removal is forever an arms race between malware authors and security researchers. So nothing will be able to prevent everything in the long run.

Many tools exist since people have different ideas on how to make things work - that is why we have many antivirus software in the first place just to prevent malware.

Some infections only live in RAM it seems and even safemode scans cant get them because they are file-less.

To be frank there is no such thing as a RAM-only infections. RAM loses all of its information when you reboot or shutdown, so there is no malware that only run from RAM. Malware is always on the hard drive or some other storage media since they need a place to store their information - the question is where (after all a hard drive is a big place to hide information).
