If you know of this tool, your opinions on this tool will be greatly appreciated.

 

For those who do not know: Sophos Clean works as a standalone, on-demand malware scanner. Use it alongside your existing antivirus to catch next-generation malware that has no immediate detection signature.

Your welcome :-)  Sadly from what I understand, it is not a free tool, but does have a 30 day free trial.

That is correct. Sophos Clean is built on HitmanPro technology but not intended for the Home user..

...we’ve built Sophos Clean on top of the cutting-edge HitmanPro technology, using progressive behavior analytics, forensics and collective intelligence to discover and remove all traces of malware threats that your antivirus might miss.

Got malware? Get Sophos Clean

 

4. Is Sophos Clean intended for home use?
No. It can only be purchased in a minimum of 5 user licences to aim it solely at the business space. HitmanPro continues to be available from Surfright for consumers.

Sophos Clean: Frequently Asked Questions

Sophos Clean is available for SMB customers only, however, you can use SurfRight (a Sophos company) Hitman Pro which is still available for home users.

Sophos Clean

Sophos Clean and HitmanPro are...Two names for same product.

Sophos Clean and HitmanPro use the same license. You can scan for free ALWAYS, cleaning is free for 30 days. Cleaning after 30 days requires paid license. Same for both products.

I read your review of HitmanPro from last year.  It seems very good.  Do you think it will work on Windows 10?
