Operating System:Windows XP/Vista/7/8
32-bit program. Can run on both a 32-bit and 64-bit OS.

Review:

TDSSKiller is a utility created by Kaspersky Labs that is designed to remove the TDSS rootkit. This rootkit is know under other names such as Rootkit.Win32.TDSS, Tidserv, TDSServ, and Alureon. TDSSKiller will also attempt to remove other rootkits such as the ZeroAccess or ZeroAccess rootkit if it is detected.

A rootkit is a malware program that is designed to hide itself or other computer infections on your computer. These types of programs are typically harder to remove than generic malware, which is the reason that stand-alone utilities such as TDSSKiller have been developed.

Usage Instructions

TDSSKiller can be downloaded as an EXE or a ZIP file that contains the executable. When using the program, it is easier to download the EXE directly and only download the ZIP file if your computer software or Internet connection does not allow the direct download of executables.

It is important to note that many rootkits target the name of the TDSSKiller executable so that it is terminated when you attempt to run it. Therefore, after downloading or extracting the executable you should rename it toiexplore.exe so that it can more easily bypass any protection routines a particular rootkit may use.

TDSSKiller has the following command-line arguments:

-l <file_name>– Save the TDSSKiller to log to the specified file name. If you do not specify a full pathname, TDSSKiller will save the log in the same folder that the executable resides in.

-qpath <folder_name>– Specify the path to a folder that TDSSKiller should use as the Quarantine folder. If this folder does not exist, TDSSKiller will create it.

-h – Display a list of the command line arguments.

-sigcheck – Detects all drivers that do not contain a digital signature as suspicious.

-tdlfs – Detect the presence of TDLFS file system which the TDL 3/4 rootkits create in the last sectors of hard disk drives for storing its files. All these files can be quarantined.

The following arguments make the actions apply without prompting the user:

-qall – Copy all objects to quarantine folder (Very Aggressive).

-qsus – Copy only the suspicious objects to the quarantine folder. (Safer)

-qboot – Quarantine all boot sectors.

-qmbr – Make a copy of all the Master Boot Records and store them in the quarantine folder.

-qcsvc <service_name>– Copy the specified service to the quarantine folder.

-dcsvc <service_name>– Delete the specified service. Only use if your sure the service should be removed.

-silent – Scan the computer in silent mode. This will not display any windows and allows the program to be used in a centralized way over the network.

-dcexact – Automatically detect and cure any known threats.

For example, you can use the following command to scan your PC and also generated a detailed log written to the file called report.txt. This report will be created in the same folder that TDSSKiller resides in.

TDSSKiller.exe -l report.txt

Product Description from Kaspersky Lab:

A rootkit is a program or a program kit that hides the presence of malware in the system.

A rootkit for Windows systems is a program that penetrates into the system and intercepts the system functions (Windows API). It can effectively hide its presence by intercepting and modifying low-level API functions. Moreover it can hide the presence of particular processes, folders, files and registry keys. Some rootkits install its own drivers and services in the system (they also remain “invisible”).

Kaspersky Lab has developed the TDSSKiller utility that allows removing rootkits.

Review:

AdwCleaner is a program that searches for and deletes Adware, Toolbars, Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUP), and browser Hijackers from your computer.  By using AdwCleaner you can easily remove many of these types of programs for a better user experience on your computer and while browsing the web.

The types of programs that AdwCleaner targets are typically bundled with free programs that you download from the web.  In many cases when you download and install a program, the install will state that these programs will be installed along with the program you downloaded.  Unless you perform a Custom install, these unwanted programs will automatically be installed on your computer leaving you with extra browser toolbars, adware, and other unwanted programs.  AdwCleaner is designed to search for and remove these types of programs.

To see the latest changes to this program, you can visit its changelog at:

http://general-changelog-team.fr/~xplode/Changelogs/CG_AdwCleaner_EN.txt

AdwCleaner Usage Instructions:

Using AdwCleaner is very simple. Simply download the program and run it.  You will then be presented with a screen that contains a Scan and Clean button.  The Scan button will cause AdwCleaner to search your computer for unwanted programs and then display all the files, folders, and registry entries found on your computer that are used by adware programs.

When the scan has finished, look through the scan results and uncheck any entries that you do not wish to remove. When you are satisfied with the selection, simply click on the Clean button, which will cause AdwCleaner to reboot your computer and remove the files and registry entries associated with the various adware that you are removing.  On reboot, AdwCleaner will display a log showing the files, folders, and registry entries that were removed.

Please note that Antivir Webguard uses ASK Toolbar as part of its web security. If you remove ASK by using Adwcleaner, Antivir Webguard will no longer work properly. Therefore, if you use this program please use the instructions below to access the options screen where you should enable/DisableAskDetections before using AdwCleaner.

It is also important to note that certain adware programs such as Babylon and Delta Search include a program that alerts you when a program is trying to change your browser’s search or home page settings. When running AdwCleaner it will reset your search settings to the default Microsoft one if it detects it has been changed by an adware. If you see the warning that states AdwCleaner is trying to change your browser settings, please allow it to do so.

AdwCleaner also contains some advanced options that disable certain detections.  To access these options, you can click on the question mark (?) in the upper left corner of the program and then click on Options.  You will then be presented with a dialog where you can disable various detections.  These options are described below:

  • /DisableAskDetection – This option disables Ask Toolbar detection.
  • /DisableIEDetection – This option disables Internet Explorer specific detections.
  • /DisableFFDetection – This option disables Firefox specific detections.
  • /DisableChromeDetection – This option disables detections for Chrome & Chromium based browsers.
  • /DisableOperaDetection – This option disables Opera specific detections.
  • /DisableProxyDetection – This option disables Internet Proxy detections.
