This application aids in the removal of Trojan Horses from a computer
Trojan Remover was written to aid in the removal of Trojan Horses and Internet Worms when standard anti-virus software has either failed to detect the problem or is unable to effectively eliminate it.
Trojan Remover's database currently contains 16903 individual trojan/worm signatures (including variants) [as at 8th October 2005].
The majority of Virus and Trojan Scanners are well able to detect malicious Trojan Horses and Internet Worms but are not always very efficient in removing them once they have been triggered.
Trojan Remover was written specifically to carry out such a removal without the user having to manually edit system files, including the Registry.
The program also removes the additional system modifications some Trojans carry out which are ignored by other Virus and Trojan Scanners.
Trojan Remover examines the system files, including Windows Registry and will determine the programs and files that are loaded at boot time. The vast majority of trojans are loaded this way.
Trojan Remover will scan ALL the files loaded at boot time for Remote Access Trojans ('backdoors', like NetBus, SubSeven, Optix Pro, Back Orifice etc.), Internet Worms and other malware.
For each identified Trojan Horse, Worm, or other malware, Trojan Remover will pop up an alert screen showing the file location and name; it will offer to remove the program's reference from the system files and allow you to rename the file to stop its activation.
Changes in this version
* Added new scan routine: Autorun.inf files are now searched for and scanned.
* Improved registry scan to include checks of Drivers32 entries (an obscure loading point used by some recent malware).
* Improved detection and removal of Backdoor.Rustock variants.
*Added new heuristic detection methods for the VirtuMonde/Vundo malware family.
