    Since Olmarik usually comes with a rootkit, I'd suggest creating a rescue cd, booting the system from it and running a full system scan.

    You are referring to a standalone removal tool that targets merely on Olmarik infection. It's not a complete antivirus solution that is supposed to protect against millions of threats.

    The ESET Olmarik standolne cleaner can be dowloaded from here.
