    Specifically, is there a multi-engine on-demand scanner like Hitman Pro, but also features free removal?

    I checked those programs like Avert that use scripting to automate several downloadable scanners together but was not impressed.

    Other than Zemana Anti-Malware (rebrand of Hitman Pro) and AVERT-like software, there is none.

    WinMHR claims to use multiple cloud scanners, but it's detection rate isn't good. Also can't remove.

    Oh okay, that's a shame. I guess I shouldn't worry too much; I haven't had a real infection in a couple years, plus I have a drive image if I ever got a bad infection.

    BugBopper, but it does not have removal function for free version, just like Hitman:rolleyes:

    It seems there are no multi-engine scanners that are free and have removal function.

    BugBopper still has a free version? I don't see Wuzzup on their site anymore.

    Comodo Cleaning Essentials RC2 is very buggy. Newer versions don't have DACS.

    yeah, wuzzup is no more, bugbopper is the free version now...and as far as removal, i'm pretty sure it does have removal, but it'll just nuke the infected files themselves, don't think it'll hunt through the registry looking for traces or whatever. not 100% certain of that.

    I think you best bet here is to have a program like Avira Free installed as a on-demand scanner only, MBAM and A2 emergency scanner and your realtime AV. I use Avast. I know it's not one complete program with multiple engines but at least it's a start.

    There is also loads of free scanners anyway,

    Malwarebytes and superantispyware

    Drweb cure it if you wish for one that doesn't need installing.


    Hitmanpro is also free until first removal is used.

    Then you also have free antivirus choices too, there is no reason for anyone to pay for anything if you take the trouble to use the different tools.

    However, personally I've chosen paid for options and always have done. :p

    Getting off-topic from what the poster requests: multi-engine freeware scanners other than HMP

    I've heard of using free AVs with resident protection turned off, but I've also heard their low-level drivers conflict and you shouldn't have two antiviruses period. Which is true?

    @ESS474: First one isn't. Subsequent scans are.

    @Brandonn2010: Depends on the AV. Second one is generally false, especially on custom installs.
