View Full Version : Malware Removal Guides

2008-11-08, 16:00
This weeks news start with our forums new Malware Removal Guides (http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=54) part. As you hopefully have noticed, we try to write down a few sentences about each threat Spybot-S&D detects. Thinking on how we could improve that service in preparation for Spybot-S&D 2.0, we decided to add more information. Removal guides are surely not a new idea, and not all can be really complete, since malware likes to use hiding methods that make them difficult to detect, and textual explanations already start to lack when it comes to randomized filenames. Still, some information is better than none, and we decided we'll just try and give our best in describing manual removal. Rolling out hundreds, if not thousands of guides will take a few days, maybe weeks, but you can already see the first ones here (http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=54) and comment here.

The Spybot 2.0 blog (http://forums.spybot.info/blog.php?u=1&blogcategoryid=6) also has a new entry on usability for error handling concepts (http://forums.spybot.info/blog.php?b=29).
