AVZ Antiviral Toolkit 4.37
This is an excellent utility that I've used on numerous occasions.
I second that!
change log .?
What exactly is it? What program could it be compared to?
I can't think of another product that it directly compares with,but I suppose Comodo Cleaning Essentials and Emsisoft Emergency Kit would be the most similar.AVZ has more advanced functionality than either of those however,here's a couple of screenshots.
So it's an advanced malware removal kit rather than a simple on-demand scanner?
Yes. User must interprete the logs and create scripts.
It can be deemed similar to OTM or Combofix. If you don't have enough knowledge in Windows internals, you should use it under supervision.
What is OTM?
I think that it means "OldTimer's Move-It", but I am not 100% sure.
The following is the Google Translation of the changelog:

how good is it at detection will it be a good addition to my on demand scanner
HMP and MBAM
also is it really devolped by kaspersky
Decent addition,and it is developed by Oleg Zaitsev ,Kaspersky´s employee.
Is it no addition to anything, it's an advanced tool for advanced users to manually remove some hard to remove treats. It has several unhook and removal options, depending on what script you use. It's not a signature based approach - although it detects some treats.
I tried it, but had a lot of errors. Also the driver still isn't 64-bit compatible.
This toolkit is still a real PLUS for examining ur systems 4 sure.
That's what makes it so useful...
