Spyware - Trojan And Other Bot Programs You Should Have

Spyware - Trojan And Other Bot Programs You Should Have

You Can Get All Of These At

StartupList (zipped): A simple tool that lists all and every auto starting program on your system. You might be surprised what it finds, this is way better than Msconfig. Commonly used to troubleshoot malfunctioning systems, trojan/viral infections, new spyware/malware breed and the likes.
Currently at version: 1.52.1

• HijackThis (zipped): A general homepage hijackers detector and remover. Initially based on the article Hijacked!, but expanded with almost a dozen other checks against hijacker tricks. It is continually updated to detect and remove new hijacks. It does not target specific programs/URLs, just the methods used by hijackers to force you onto their sites. As a result, false positives are imminent and unless you are sure what you're doing, you should always consult with knowledgable folks (e.g. the forums) before deleting anything.

• A rudimentary HijackThis log tutorial by me is available here.
The official HijackThis QuickStart for posting on the SpywareInfo forums is available here.
Currently at version: 1.98

• CWShredder: (zipped) A small utility for removing CoolWebSearch (aka CoolWwwSearch, YouFindAll, White-Pages.ws and a dozen other names). Spybot S&D and Ad-aware tend to forget essential parts of the hijack, so until they update, you can use this to completely remove the hijack. This program is updated to remove the new variants once they come out.
Read my article with documentation on Coolwebsearch here.
Currently at version: 1.59.1

• BugOff: (zipped) This little app disables three exploits that are commonly used by browser hijackers (including CWS), thus protecting you from infection. This does not remove an existing infection! Applicable to everyone that uses Internet Explorer.
Currently at version: 1.00

• BHOList A frontend for TonyKlein's BHO Collection that downloads the list, and displays it in a sortable, searchable list. You can also export it to a file and load that file back instead of downloading it from Sysinfo.org.
Currently at version: 1.40

• Kill2Me A removal tool specifically for the Look2Me parasite. This tool removes versions 115, 116, 117 118, 120, 121 and 122 (the most recent ones) on Windows versions 95, 98, 98SE and ME.
Currently at version: 1.11

• Uptimer4 A bar that sits at the top of your screen and can display over 20 pieces of system information that might be useful to you. System time, system date, uptime, free RAM, free pagefile, free disk space, CPU usage, IP address(es), Winamp controls, battery status, running programs, netstat, etc.
This project is currently suspended until I have more time to update it. Keep sending in bugreports though. :-)
(Some functions may not work properly with Windows 95 and Windows NT4 without SP6.)
Currently at version: 1.0 (beta)

• MovieCollection A database program that can keep a list of movies you have (intended for DVD Rips), publishing this in a format that is directly readable by all major browsers that support CSS. To see what it can do, take a look at my movies list.
Currently at version: 1.42

• TransIcon This does exactly the same as TransText, but is WAY smaller and more flexible. It uses a tweak to make the background color of the text below desktop icons transparent, and exits. The effect should last until the next boot, so a shortcut to this program in your Startup folder works perfectly. Needs command line parameters (add them to the 'Target' field in the shortcut) to specify the color you want the icon text itself to be in the form of hex values (e.g. FFFF00), RGB (e.g. 16711935) or words (e.g. white).
Note: this program is not useful on Windows XP, since that has support for this tweak natively.
Currently at version: 1.01

• KazaaBegone A Kazaa uninstaller which scans and removes all elements of all Kazaa versions, as well as all of the bundled software that comes with it.

Warning This version has a bug that can cause your Internet connection to be broken when removing New.Net, WebHancer or CommonName. An update is being worked on. If you still want to use KazaaBegone, download LSPFix to fix your Internet connection (download it before you run KazaaBegone, of course).
