    Anyone have any thoughts on the Norman Free Malware cleaner? I currently use SS5 and Malwarebytes Pro-just curious if I'd be wasting my time?

    I guess what I am asking is in your (or anybody who is reading this) opinion, what in the top banana in Malware cleaning tools. I used Norman (and some other things) previously on another machine at Microsoft's direction. I am not an expert, I have a small amount of knowledge which makes me dangerous. :eek:

    Find out for yourself what people like to use (top bananas in their opinion) by checking the polls forum

    You're already on the right track. It's necessary to use multiple tools because there is no one killer antimalware app that catches everything. "Top Banana" is actually a moving target and is awarded to the app, or apps, that catch the problem you're currently dealing with. Tomorrow the award may go to someone else :cool:

    Better use Emsisoft Emergency Kit (EEK) and Hitman Pro (apart from SAS and MBAM). ;)
