RogueRemover is a utility that can remove various rogue antispyware, antivirus and hard drive cleaning utilities. Rogue applications are applications that rather than remove spyware, provide false positives, distribute malware or spyware, advertise, or provide useless uninstallers. The main point is that rogue applications are useless and eat up system resources.

System requirements: WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista
Writes settings to: Application folder. It also writes a single entry to the registry to indicate whether this is the first time the program is run on the machine.
Dependencies: MSVBVM60.DLL
Stealth: ? No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the installer and extract to a folder of your choice. The application files are located in the {app} subfolder. Launch RogueRemover.exe.

Nope...this is no longer available at majorgeeks or tinyurl. What's more, with something like an antivirus or antispyware, putting your faith in an old version is worse than not having any tool and still being wary. The ostensible successor is Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware product which is not stealthy...albeit it does work very well.

.. Version 1.24 is still available from (shortcut to the relevant SnapFiles page; file is actually hosted at the original publisher's site)

No longer exists! Go ahead and click the link, if you do it takes you to the site, you can download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, which contains the Rogue Remover, however, is not portable to the best of my knowledge.

the uniextract works for me.. program runs, didn't find anything, so I can't tell if my system is good, or it doesn't find much... but I've only had this system running for a month..

Extract does not work. Install>copy>uninstall is the procedure needed

Crap. It's _not_ portable. On computers nowadays, we're not allowed administrator rights. Don't care if it only writes 1 entry to the registry, can't unpack it because it prompts for administrator rights!!! True portable apps don't do this. This should be fixed so that it can be simply unpacked _without_ touching the registry AT ALL!!!

try to get: "a-squared free" from it should remove that TR for ever (this programm helped me often but you have to be careful what things you delete with that programm) If you dont know properly what do NOT remove any tracs everything else can be removed. (it is also portable but writes settings into the registry I think)

Do you have a freeware version for Windows Milenium? I know it's basically unsupported everywhere now, but it was working most of the time for me. We are in a wait period of about 6 months before buying a new computer. Suddenly there's another TR that I can't find to remove.
