The tool, designed to work alongside an existing anti-virus installation, removes viruses, spyware, rootkits, and fake anti-virus programs from Windows machines.

The new version of Sophos’ Virus Removal Tool includes updates such as:
  • Improved scan status information
  • Options to run in safe mode
  • Ability to run on machines using proxy settings
  • Faster scanning times
  • Improved malware clean-up
  • Auto-update capabilities.
Several of these features, such as the auto-updates and faster scanning time, are a direct result of user feedback.
