    I was wondering what do you guys think about Trojan Remover 6.1.6?
    www.simplysup.com
    How is it in terms of Database and Trojan stoping?

    An accurate, succinct, clear appraisal. I agree.

    TR is an on-demand scanner. It suffices very nicely IF you scan every download before executing it, & also scan every email attachment that you plan to open, & also have your email client set so as to show ONLY the raw code of MIME & HTML messages, & also take a shower at least weekly, whether you need it or not.

    TR's database #6084 on 2/13/04 had 8,455 "unique trojan signatures." I have read that you can't necessarily judge an AT by its DB so... :blink:

    Real-time protection fails so I advice to make another choice.

    Look around the Wilders-forum and make your decision........

    Considering that you somehow know the name of the trojan so precisely I have to wonder if you are serious.....but no matter.....this will lead you to several trojan scanners which you can choose from:

    I don't know why anyone would use Trojan Remover. Not only does it not have any real time protection but it has very poor detection capabilities and running a hard drive scan is extremely slow. Including this product doesn't really do anything while it's scanning, I found it kind of funny it takes so long to scan. The product is garbage.

    Oh, that's really really a scientific, objective comment. NOT! This kind of broad-brush nonsense is the REAL garbage.

    I'm sorry but I couldn't think of a more politically correct way of putting it. I'd almost call the product a scam.
