Editors' Review

Trojan Killer targets many kinds of threats and nuisances on your Windows PC, including malware, adware, and PUPs.

Pros

Fast: Trojan Killer's full-system scan finished faster than competitor tools' quick scans and flagged more items for removal, including many PUPs that, if not actual threats, can be tossed safely.

Real-time protection: Activating this feature's proactive protection prevents threats from running and alerts you before you run a suspicious process.

Tools: The Tools menu includes Ignore and Quarantine lists and buttons to reset your browser's settings and Windows Update. This is handy if they become infected.

Cons

Safe threats: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Microsoft's Malicious Software Removal Tool all passed several threats flagged by Trojan Killer as clean. The files were unneeded, and removing them manually caused no ill effects.

Bottom Line

To clean an infected PC, start with freeware, but buy Trojan Killer if the others fail.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Trojan Killer 2.2.5.4.

What's new in version 3.2.14
One-day fixes... The time has come: a very-very big boss saw the last changes in the program and was yelling for a few minutes, but fortunately no one was hurt. Then, we changed the next: Flipping of the Tools page on mouse moving over the buttons was removed; Usability of the language selection page in Settings was improved; A bug with all comboboxes in Settings page when they are not in focus was investigated and it is on the half-way to solve. It remains under the control; Installation script was corrected in order to respond to new conditions and limitations of Windows Spring Update; Flipping of several areas in the top menu was refined; Pop-up messages in the notification area are still under review. A few of them were deactivated, several were rewritten, one was killed; Some long-awaited and very effective changes in analytic's routing: a new updater starts this week and the last preparations were finished. This will be a really all-changing improvement! Developers Team, how are you? That was a "last call" to finish our redesign! ... and, as usually, tens of fixes to improve scan, detection and removal quality!
