"Literally saved my life"

May 16, 2013  |  By NexusKevin

 |  Version: Sophos Virus Removal Tool 2.2

Pros

Very powerful as it got sirefef.gen c virus removed automatically and more.

Found viruses I never knew I had.

Cons

It does take ages to scan whole computer. Almost over night but worth it.

Summary

The virus I had was a sirefef.gen c and for those who have had the pleasure of this virus you find out it has a very high mutation rate and is a ***** to kill. But this Removal kit got this virus soon as I turned the computer on.

If you are having virus problems and have a rubbish anti-virus e.g. McAfee etc. I suggest this excellent kit.

By the way I used 2.3 not 2.2 . Go on the sophos website and download it.

"Easy to use and effective!"

February 06, 2013  |  By Estet32

 |  Version: Sophos Virus Removal Tool 2.2

Pros

The Sophos tool found a new Zbot threat in memory (with a new MD5 signature, I think) almost immediately and removed it; other tools had missed it.

Cons

None that I can think of.

"Best Ever."

November 19, 2012  |  By gameplayer2014

 |  Version: Sophos Virus Removal Tool 2.2

Pros

Easy to use, best out there.

Cons

None so far

Summary

This is the only antivirus there is out there that i have found that actually deletes a virus. AVG, Avast!, MalwareBytes doesn't come close to this.
