jmonge did you give this a try?
Here is a review of this tool:
Not good at all against rogues!
Thanks for the comparison!
So I am guessing the is not worth downloading?
Also is this lifetime or one year?
Either would appear to be too long.
Fellow aussie, hitman pro and MBAM cleaned a friend's system last night. In my opinion, two of the best programs around.
What ever happened to the free version of The Cleaner? I saw some old threads about it going free again but I can't find it any more.
Yes Best programs.
But 2 days ago i tried to clean my cousin's pc which was infected with some nasty malwares including conficker. His pc was up to date with Eset SS . But that malware disabled Eset. I tried to clean his pc with MBAM , Hitman pro. Mbam couldnt detect anything . Hitman pro detected 1 malware(GData) , and removed that. But still some malwares are remaining(some windows funtions are disabled).He's calling me daily to clean his pc. fortunately there is a back up of his C: drive.so im going to restore that backup tommorrow.
Also we cannot judge the effectiveness of a software by just testing against Rogue.Almost all Avs are not able to detect new rogues.
Take a look at the action over at their support forum...
I'll pass on this
I think they just put up that forum software according to their blog. It must have deleted all the old posts they had (If anything was posted before)
Okay, no posts in 5 weeks since the new forum opened.
Didn't you try some other apps like SAS well it is hard to believe that MBAM missed because this has not happened in my case and hope it never will
This giveaway has dropped down to 1 and 2 star ratings.
The simple answer as to why there is no detection is that the sample hasn't been seen by MBAM or HMP so it hasn't been added to the database.
Most AV/AM vendors are dismayed at missing an infection as much as the person that's infected.
The authors of these malwares usually test that their exploits are missed by most before releasing.
The best thing to do is to grab any undetected samples and get em over to your favourite good guys for inclusion into their database.
Below is a pic of different installers for the rogue "Internet Security 2010".
Probably only have a quarter of what's out there with new undetected versions getting released at any time.
@darksidesidiuos yes i tried it but not to happy with it i just post it to see how many people tried it and i guez no one likes it so far
SAS will take so much time to scan. Its better to restore that pc instead of scanning.thats y.
yes but i couldnt collect that malwares. Because only Gdata part in Himanpro detected one and removed that .i couldnt find which is malicious.
Give a-squared free a try (one of the best anti-malwares). Also try GMER and combofix on your friends' pc. With these he should get his pc back to function (specialy combofix). Also try dr. web cureit too.
scanning with these tools will take the whole day.
Its better to restore backup(5mins)
what about the champ? prevx
just detection only .
No removal, No blocking
I didnt try that.
But hitman pro includes prevx. Only Gdata detected 1 malware.
Leave this topic. And stay on Topic . Because we are in "Giveaway of the Day - The Cleaner"
