Trojan Killer targets many kinds of threats and nuisances on your Windows PC, including malware, adware, and PUPs.
Fast: Trojan Killer’s full-system scan finished faster than competitor tools’ quick scans and flagged more items for removal, including many PUPs that, if not actual threats, can be tossed safely.
Real-time protection: Activating this feature’s proactive protection prevents threats from running and alerts you before you run a suspicious process.
Tools: The Tools menu includes Ignore and Quarantine lists and buttons to reset your browser’s settings and Windows Update. This is handy if they become infected.
Safe threats: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot Search & Destroy, and Microsoft’s Malicious Software Removal Tool all passed several threats flagged by Trojan Killer as clean. The files were unneeded, and removing them manually caused no ill effects.
To clean an infected PC, start with freeware, but buy Trojan Killer if the others fail.
Editors’ note: This is a review of the trial version of Trojan Killer 188.8.131.52.
