Recommended Virus Removal Tools

By masterchuck ·
I know all the hype and talk about the various anti-virus systems. Norton, McAfee, Trend, Kaspersky, etc etc etc.

I run a computer repair shop. And a lot of what I get into my shop on a daily basis. Are people who have gotten infected. Usually due to their own misconceptions about virus protection.

But, as it is now my job to deactivate, and remove these virus' from their system, while maintaining their systems integrity and data.

My question for the forum is this. What utilities and programs that are out there. That are recommended, and have proven themselves effective, and fast, for removing these infections.

Any advise and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

smitfraudfix - run in safemode to loosen the grip that scare-ware/randsomeware has on a users pc.

malwarebytes - beep file and registry cleaner, works good if the infected computer allows an internet connection for updates

superantispyware - beep file and registry cleaner, works good if the infected computer allows an internet connection for updates

Panda Antivirus - great realtime protection, low impact on harddrive space because it is cloud antivirus - one of the best freebies

You might also try uninstalling Java, Flash and editing msconfig
