5 Frewall Files: 5 Apps for Advanced Malware Removal

Credits go out to MaximumPC who put this article together.

There are a few changes Id make to their post however and a few side notes.

Combofix will only work on x86 systems.

Avira is good, but Id use something along the lines of Hirens Boot CD where it offers more than virus removal in the off chance that it destroyed something other than system files. If your going to waste a disc you might as well use more space with more tools.

Returnil is also good, but if you cant be bothered to reboot then Id use Comodo Time Machine. You can read about that here:

Overall MaximumPC compiled a good list and the tools of choice are at user discretion.
