Spybot - Search & Destroy
Full user review
"Back to greatness"
Found and removed 4 trojans that none of leading anti-virus programs detected
None except an old Spybot had to be replaced because it said I wasn't the administrator, which my computer confirmed I was
Spybot was the go to removal tool in the late 90s, early 00s, but fell out of favor. I like to think I'm a savvy downloader, but I wound up with Clarosearch anyway (DVDSoft, I believe). AVG anti-virus; spyware blaster; spyware terminator; malware bytes; superantispyware...none of these programs were of help. Out of desperation, I tried Spybot, which I hadn't used in awhile. Bingo! It also found 3 others running in the background. After Spybot did its job, my computer runs noticeably faster. I highly recommend Spybot, and I wonder why the other highly rated virus/spyware programs were so unhelpful.
