    I keep reading that such and such AV finds, but will not remove a certain virus/malware. Often there is an argument that challenges a particular AVs lack of removal. Recently I recall such a post regarding AntiVir and another NOD32.

    Too bad there is not a test that is concerned with removal after detection.
    Is there such a test that is considered reliable?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    So bigC, based on the first chart, Avira and Nod neither were determined to be great at actual cleaning, but Kaspersky was. Is this correct?

    I read about that too, that's one of the reasons, I don't depend on AV anymore.
    I solve all these problems with my frozen snapshot, which does a complete removal of all malware and correct the errors made by my security softwares, like firewall, scanners, HIPS, etc.

    I find this really disturbing if true. It says alot about Kasperskys ability.

    It is true !!! Scanners sometimes detect malware, but can't remove it or only remove it partial.
    This is in fact an old issue, not a recent discovery.

    The best removal is by Image restore/ Defreeze/ De-Shadow :) etc.

    Voila, you got it. I trust my frozen snapshot more than scanners.
    A frozen snapshot doesn't detect or remove malware, it detects and removes CHANGES on my harddisk and that's why I trust it more than anything else.

    If you know how to reboot your PC, than it's easy.

    Of course you first have to learn how to use FirstDefense-ISR, but the forum of FirstDefense-ISR at Wilders, has many experienced users, who can help you immediately to learn how to use it. Also the forum is full of posts with questions of starters, you only have to read them.
    The trial version is 14-15 days and it will cost you $70 after that, but you will never regret your money, that's what all FDISR-users say after using it for awhile.
    Don't confuse it with "Rollback Rx", I prefer to call it "Lollback Rx".

    For the record, my signature doesn't exist, it's my sense of humor to call it that way.
