XP Pro Ver. "BHODemon" malware software

By socasio69 ·
In the article by Jonathan Yarden dated 4/1/2005 republished this week in TechRepublic, a malware software called BHODemon was recommended. It seems that the present version does not support Windows XP Pro or any other XP version. Has a new release been made supporting the XP world and if so, how can I get a copy of it?

Since BHODemon is not actively developed at this time (See: http://www.definitivesolutions.com/bhodemon.htm)

You should consider using another tool to eliminate the Browser Helper Objects. I would recommend three tools.

HiJackThis:

Spybot Search & Destroy:

SpywareBlaster:

While only Spybot can remove the BHOs SpywareBlaster will not allow them to be installed in the first place.

You can use the olde version of BHODemon ( see the Answer 1 for the link), but remember that it is not being actively updated and as a result it might miss some newer BHOs.

Forgot to mention that HiJackThis requires some thought and education, but it is worth the effort to learn.
