Exterminate It! Antimalware


Known threats:700,085 Last Update:March 01, 12:55


Having wasted better part of a day on a Vundo infection, which none of the antivirus/antispyware solutions I normally use came even close to handling (one of them actually compounded the problem due to a partial fix, causing all browsers to seemingly lose connectivity after a few seconds), Exterminate It! fixed it in a single pass and one restart.

Nothing short of perfect. A few dollars very well spent. Thanks again!
