    Greatis (known from RegRun, UnhackMe, etc) has released a free program called "Shortcut Antivirus".
    http://www.greatis.com/security/shortcut_antivirus.html

    Notes by me:
    I have not tried it (and I'm afraid that I have about almost zero time to test things for quite some time to come....).

    Hmm thanks for the news. A very limited tool. The name Antivirus is misleading.

    Hi sg09,

    Yes, I agree with you about that name "Antivirus" !

    PS: I thought that I should mention the tool, but (as I said) I have not tested it and I don't know how it compares with the MS out-of-band fix from last week. So it is only info.....

    Another variation on the theme. Just like buses, you wait and wait, and all of a sudden along come several all at once :D

    Still sounds good, and different to the other fixes/patches, so very welcome :thumb: Might try it, thanks for posting :)

    @FanJ: No Problem..;) But useful tool indeed as it probably detects them realtime... As I get from the youtube video...:doubt:
