    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.

    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.
