Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone suggest a good antispyware or malware that i can download for free!, I have a Trojan rampaging through my pc and i cant catch the little sucker :(

  2. Google AVG and download.It updates itself and can handle anything thats out there.
  3. adaware was always pretty good for a free product. Norton security seems to do a pretty good job of killing trojans.

    Course you could upgrade to vista which has a number of anti trojan measures. Or course there is a price to be paid for that..... :roll:
  4. msr

    msr LE

    Yes, the best way to stop this is Cureit from :

    It is a self contained programme, which does not install itself onto your PC.

  5. Yeah Stuart666, i called into PC world and requested what teh upgrade to Vista would be, OMFG!!!

    I downloaded Spydoctor from PC Tools and its catching the fecker, slippery little buggers, fiesty too! Whacked the cost on the OH`s Credit Card as it was his fault for surfing some unsavory but very very interesting sites that we caught it from :D
  6. AVG has done wonders for me

    and bearing in mind the web sites of filth i belly crawl through
  7. Download The Cleaner V5 from It is designed specifically for the removal of trojan horse programmes. Btw, if you have had a trojan on your system for a while, change all your passwords as most trojans are designed to steal passwords.
  8. msr

    msr LE


    If the sites are as bad as you suggest, you might like to have a look at a linux live CD - this runs (as expected) from your CDROM and does not access your hard disk. Have a look at

    When you have finished surfing, remove the CD, re-boot the PC and there is your Windows installation, utterly unsullied. No history, no spyware, no trace!

  9. You may also want to run Adaware 2007 and spybot S & D. Both are free.

    Hijackthis is also a good free tool. It will tell you what is running on your system. It saves a log file that can be pasted or uploaded to here and this will then tell you what is good or bad. Very handy for seeing what malware/trojans etc are actually running. Good luck.
