    This program seems to have been around for awhile now yet is rarely mentioned in these circles if at all, and not even discussed.
    I would just like to see some of your opinions on it.

    It detects and doesn't claim to remove but points you to their webpage encyclopedia where you can review the methods for manual removal.

    Over the years it's proven to point out some items that more seasoned apps like AdAware and others had missed. Also is anyone have a clue how it's seemingly able to perform it's complete scan in a wink of eye? I never seen another scanner begin and end that quickly. When i first found it and tried it out i thought it was joke and moreover what it found i thought had to be FPs but after searching diligently on my PC and using some of the data at their website, sure enough what the detection showed in the scan results WAS really there.

    We have had numerous discussions\threads concerning this program and my opinion of this layer of protection has not changed since I made this post in one of our past Bazooka threads.

    It is a quicky (594 objects is database). I have used it for about a year. I use it, CWShredder, Sentinel and Blacklight for in-between scans (Kaspersky, Ewido, SpyBot and a few more for in-depth scans). The Bazooka scan takes about 1-2 seconds.
