    Other Than Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, and A-squared do we have any other free Anti-Trojan software left? I read that Moosoft has a free version of The Cleaner but I have been unable to find it.

    I use MAM and a-squared. I see no reason to use any others.

    I was thinking about using more anti-malware (preferably freeware) at one time. All I have now (apart from my AV, SpywareBlaster & Windows defender) is SUPERAntiSpyware. I think that is enough to be honest.

    SuperAntispyware is good for scanning, but in my experience, MBAM remove threats better than SAS.

    Oh now I see it, it says free for personal use in the text but it say's shareware in the top. So I'll try this later and see how it is for a free anti-trojan.

    Both are good in their respects:)

    But the important thing is that the two good programs are available for FREE

    As far as I know while The Cleaner v 5.x had a free edition as well, The Cleaner v 6.x is only shareware (30 days trial)

    I use both MalwareBytes' AntiMalware (full) and The Cleaner v 6.2 with no problems.

    MBAM works fine on a 64 bit OS and is an excellent antimalware.
    The Cleaner has been the very first Anti-Trojan able to detect and remove SuBSeven and BackOrifice trojans

    I have both Trojan Remover Lifetime License but they don't have anymore it's pay yearly but you can have on 4 home machines and I have Trojan Hunter also but they never find anything because my Realtime scanners are very effective! But I will continue to keep them as long as they are supported for back up! But free ware you can't go wrong with MBAM, SAS, A-Squared free!

    @ CloneRanger

    As far as I know Moosoft The Cleaner was the first one.

    I have been using Moosoft The Cleaner 2.x under windows 98 if I remember right.
    Now I'm using in two computers both The Cleaner 6.2.2 and MalwareBytes' Antimalware 1.44 pro, while in two other PCs PREVX SafeOnLine 3.5 and MBAM 1.44 pro.

    I thought BoClean (formerly IClean if I remember right) had been bought by Comodo from Moosoft.

    Gents,

    Let's stick to the topic at hand. Although fun from a historical point of view, it's of no importance if Daniel/Moosoft or Kevin/PSC nailed Subseven first. Thanks ;)

    @leofelix @Paul Wilders

    Hi, just to clarify in case anyone misunderstands.

    IEClean was from PSC, iClean is from Moosoft.

    Moosoft have no connections with Comodo/PSC/BoClean.

    Comodo bought PSC which was the parent company which made several products, including BoClean/IEClean and others.

    IEClean was a seperate app from PSC, which was a forerunner to CCleaner etc.

    You can view the archived PSC website for more info etc here http://www.privsoft.com/

    Thank you for clarification CloneRanger, I didn't remember right, especially in regards to BoClean and Comodo.
    Sorry for Off topic Paul Wilders, you're right: it is not important to know what of those softwares was the first one able to remove SuBSeven and BackOrifice variants.
    No doubt
