On this page you will find a few utilities I created and some
created by others (Note: tools not created by me
are the properties of the respected owner/author as listed below) to aid in the
repair of compromised systems due to malware, spyware, viruses, and
certain Trojans These tools were designed to work on Windows 2000/XP
systems only unless otherwise stated in the product description.
When removing a virus, Trojan or worms on Windows, you should shut
down as many programs, services and processes as possible. I recommend
booting into safe mode.

What's Live Running Now
System diagnostic Utility for 2000/XP/Vista
A free utility which quickly scans your Windows computer to find settings
that may have been changed by spyware, malware or other unwanted programs.
Running Now creates a report, or log file, with the results of the scan.
IMPORTANT: Running Now does not determine what is good or bad and does not make
any changes to your computer settings. “Running Now” is not an anti-virus, an
anti-Trojan, or a spyware scanner. It only pinpoints how programs start up — it
does not scan the system to identify every trace of malware. The text file it
creates can be removed for study or stored as a benchmark. The script changes
absolutely nothing on your system (other than adding its report file). You use
it, at your own risk.
