Coming across malicious software (or malware in short) is bad news for both the home users as well as businesses. The malware infections can damage the files and you may end up losing important work or data. Additionally, the time spent in removing the malware only adds towards the losses for a business. In todays times, you should be well prepared to deal with the malware infections in your computers. Tools like Trend Micro Anti-Threat Toolkit can help you quickly analyze malware related issues and clean malware infections from computers running on Windows operating systems. It is not a full blown tool, but it can help the removal of dreaded malware like Zeus, Zbot, Cryptolocker etc.
Trend Micro Anti-Threat Toolkit is available in both offline and online versions. The offline toolkit does not require an active internet connection, while the online version needs an internet connection for downloading the latest versions of the malware definitions. In both cases, it presents you with a simple GUI having a big red Scan button, clicking on which will start the scanning of your system for the presence of malware.
By default, the scanning is done only for the processes running at the moment, auto-running programs and other such usual locations where the malware hides itself. A progress is displayed as it goes through various files on your system disk. As soon as a malware is detected, it displayed the malware information in the window.
If it finds some malicious files, it will offer to remove them at the end of the scanning. But if nothing is found, then a simple message “No Threats Found” is displayed. In the former case, you should consider enhancing the protection of your system by installing a reliable anti-virus product.
