    thank you for the heads up, i will recommend it be added to the antimalware toolkit webpage in my sig :thumb: .

    i will test it out on an infected system tonight and see how well it removes what it finds.

    well that was a waste of time. rubbish software, managed to start it once only and even then it didnt remove what it found, it just redirected to a web page. ran McAfee Stinger for comparison and it removed quite a few threats. plus the Sophos tool is not portable, its needs to mature, probably the worst removal tool i have ever used. your mileage may vary
