    Help Trojan/Dailer remover - cant remember app

    I used to use a free application that scanned the PC, it then came up with a list of issues, if you selected the issue(s) it would scan again removing these and then restart the PC. Once done, it showed success by a Big Green (felt tip style) tick.

    I can see the graphics plain as day, but cannot remember app.

    I am looking to get this (or something) similar again, due to a friend having issues (goes on internet and the explorer redirects to a betting page all the time on any explorer).

    I think it is a simple clean up that he can do, but I know AVG is unlikely to clear this (he has norton and it has not cleared it despite finding it)

    Any help on the app i am looking for, or a user friendly alternative would be great.

    Cheers.....Q

    Spybot is very thorough but can list items that may not need to be removed.

    Switch off system restore....bootinto safe mode...run combofix first...reboot back into safe mode then run malaware bytes.

    Reboot back into normal mode and run both again.

    That should fix it!!
