Computer cleaning

I want to record a few links of computer cleaning software that I find useful. Much of the advice and links came from MajorGeeks.com and this post about malware cleaning and removal.

Use these along with an antivirus program, which is essential for a Windows computer.

SUPERAntiSpyware: Gets rid of cookies and other more obvious threats.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware: Pretty self-explanatory — this utility scrubs malware.

Combofix: I’m not sure about this one. McAfee antivirus detected several supposed trojans when I tried to run Combofix, which could have been a fluke, but it could also indicate the version of Combofix I downloaded isn’t safe.

TDSSKiller.exe: This utility from Kaspersky is supposed to get at some of the more difficult trojans that can infect your computer.
