    I know that AVZ has an English Help Menu.

    However, I would like to learn more on how to use AVZ. Does anyone know of any good AVZ Tutorials and/or examples of using AVZ to detect Malware?

    Thanks in Advance.

    AFAIK AVZ deals only with the most difficult malware. It doesn't detect and remove all spectrum of malware.

    You can't see it as scan & detect tool which relys on signatures. Yes there are signatures for some malware files, but the most efficient way to use it ist to manually analyze the created logs and manually create scripts.

    Some of the features (kernel driver to unhook etc.) alows AVZ to list things that are active on systems but overseen by similar applications.

    I am beginning to look at AVZ a little more closely. I noticed that AVZ has a lot of System Information that can be easily Saved. If a person does not know much about how to recognize Malware and the PC is not severely infected, System Information file(s) could be made and sent to a knowledgeable person for review.

    Thats the sense, cause the creation of scripts for cleaning is something not trivial. For analysis I always recommend "standard script 3", which we use in KL forums to help people to clean.

    Can "standard script 3" make any modifications to the system?

    It analyzes the system and removes malware recognized from signatures afaik. Feel free to correct me if necessary.

    Based on the script name, it looks like that is what it does.

    I guess if I wanted to 'Analyze ONLY', I should select "standard script 2".
