    hi all

    in my on going work to try and compile one of the most comprehensive newb friendly help guide I can I'm now compiling a list of all the different mini removal/fix tools that have been made to fix and clean specific problems which once I'm done will be getting adding to my guide

    Any how here is what I have so far is there any that are missing ?? I know I still need to add stuff like descriptions but this is only the second draft and that will get sorted out later once I'm sure I have all the different tools that are available

    now for Worm/Virus/Trojan Removal I'm pretty sure that between all of thoughts links everything should be covered so there's no need to add anymore to that unless there is a Worm, Virus or Trojan that not covered by one of thoughts links

    however for the adware/spyware removal and fixes sections I'm sure there are plenty more that need to be added

    Bethrezen, just a small note: too much information is terrifying for newbies, even for experienced users. I suggest you make it as interesting as possible. use highlights / colors, underline and use tabs, give personal humourous comments, whatever to break the monotone tone if you know what I mean. avoid that. your first part is very good. very informative.

    Guest

    ill try it explian what it is im trying to do have you ever had a stiuation where you got infected with somthin that your normal scanners couldnt remove say for the sake of arument somthing like coolweb

    well this is where mini removel tools come in these are small tools such as coolweb shredder which are designed to deal with specific problems in this case cool web

    ok as for the mini fix tools have you ever ran in to a problem on for which microsoft dont provide a fix say for the sake of argument you are affected by messenger spam well this is where mini fix tools come in these are tools that are designed to fix specific problems such as messenger spam what they do is to let you quickley and safley disable and/or patch the affeted parts of your system to provent attackers from talking advantage of these unfixed exploits

    so what im trying to do is a compile a big list of all of the difrent mini fix/removal tools that are avalible so that when people have a problem they can quickley and easly find the tool thay need to fix there problem

    i hope this is a lil more clear now

    thats not a bad idea but id also need the url to the instructions coz using that could really mess things up if you dont know what you are doing

    may be a good idea to add a couple of other net conection fix tools as well

    hi

    I added LSP Fix but now I'm wondering if there are any other Winsock repair tools available

    because sometimes its it actually necessary to restore the networking components to default because they have been hijacked or corrupted now I know this can be done manually but its better to have a program to do it for you automatically because its less likely to screw everything up

    I know there are a couple listed at the bottom of the page you mentioned but the link for the XP one is invalid

    so do you know of any others ??

    oh also something that may be of interest to people there is now a tool listed for finding and removing super hidden files that are not visible even when show hidden files is active Delete Invalid Files

    handy for situations like this

    credit goes to JVRudnick for the find

    hi

    SpywareBlaster is listed eles where as its is an actual program as aposed to a mini tool designed to deal with a specific situation thats why its not listed in the mini removal/fixes section if you look at the full guide found here

    http://spyblocker-software.com/IPB/index.php?showtopic=1762

    you will see what i mean

    BTW thanks for the link to WinSock XP Fix
