Loaris Trojan Remover analyzes your PC for malware and other threats, including some installed or left behind by other security software. It's a premium tool that goes head-to-head with some highly respected freeware, and its deep scans tend to find PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) and other mild threats that other tools ignore. The free trial version scans but doesn't clean your computer.
PUPs: Loaris Trojan Remover flagged PUPs that freeware scanners often ignore. While not viruses, some are nuisances and can even threaten your privacy. You don't need them, and Loaris removes them.
Scan depth: System cleaners either scan lightly (first, do no harm) or deeply (when in doubt, throw it out). Loaris Trojan Remover scrubs a bit harder, though it means paying closer attention to scan results.
Reset tools: Additional tools can reset your Web browser, Windows HOSTS files, and Windows Update policies, when malware corrupts them.
Registry cleanup: Loaris Trojan Remover also cleans the residue of malware and other deleted items from the Windows Registry.
Not free: Loaris Trojan Remover isn't overpriced, especially if you prefer a more hands-free approach to PC maintenance, but similar freeware does a good job, too.
Loaris Trojan Remover doesn't stand out from the freeware alternatives in bells and whistles but in deep scanning and cleaning. It found PUPs and other useless-if-not-threatening scraps that some well-respected free anti-malware scanners missed.
