so what to do when this or any other program like it does not work?

I have had an old Flash ocx file I just cannot get rid of
I can rename it and move it around anywhere on the partition
But I cant delete it.Delete on reboot and force delete dont work

Virustotal says its not malicious....its just annoying

Been there... have you tried Killbox? (http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details ... llbox.html)

If it doesn't work still, you need to find some utility (I forgot which, sorry...) that enables you the see the the deep Windows path to it (something started with \.\\ or \?\\)...

Another program that went commercial but the link to the old portable version still works.

Just in case that link goes offline, I downloaded a backup. Here's an installer only mirror:

NoVirusthanks - SysHardener

#50 Post by webfork » Tue Feb 25, 2020 7:41 pm

Free Windows OS security application that allows you to harden Windows settings to mitigate cybersecurity threats. With this tool you can restrict functionalities of Windows and secure vulnerable applications (i.e Office and Adobe Reader). You can unassociate VBS, VBE, JS, JSE, WSH file type associations, disable JavaScript on Adobe Reader, disable Macros, OLE and ActiveX on Office, disable unused Windows Services, block outbound connections of specific programs via Windows Firewall, and much more.
For Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10 (32\64-bit)

Download: https://www.novirusthanks.org/get-file/ ... e=portable

Status: Portable - writes to settings.ini (tested by Rudy5)

Anyone still using Win7 should probably take a look at some of the options this provides. I somewhat prefer the novirusthanks approach to turning off systems versus many privacy tools, because of the way it addresses what it will break. After all, disabling some functions may help privacy but do they break your features?

I am curious about the difference between this program and OSArmor by the same group (https://www.novirusthanks.org/products/osarmor/). There seems to be a fair amount of overlap.

NoVirusThanks Malware Remover Free & ZBot Trojan Remover Free

#51 Post by aazard » Tue Dec 01, 2020 9:11 am

NoVirusThanks Malware Remover Free & ZBot Trojan Remover Free

both by https://www.novirusthanks.org/, offered as "pre-portable" versions on download page of site

https://www.novirusthanks.org/products/malware-remover/
https://www.novirusthanks.org/products/ ... n-remover/

PLUS they offer over 25 100% FREE tools, many focused on system hardening, security and forensics HERE
https://www.novirusthanks.org/download-free-software/

BOTH are current, maintained and definitions are updated.. its 100% portable and SMALL (2.97mb for AV, 501kb for Trojan remover).

NOTHING competes that is current (has definitions updated) at this size, its very effective in tests.

Its a nice companion set to the VirusTotal Scanner and Dragokas fork (currently maintained/updated still) of HiJackThis.

I have not seen anything else like these other than the fork of hijackthis and the old SMP (simple machine protect, not updated after 2008).

I dont know where def's come from, but it caught 19 of 20 sample files (HijackThis did see #20 in redundant "suite" test)

on "NoVirusThanks" antiware, their 3 tool, tests completes: hijack hunter, maleware remover, zues anti rootkit.

These apps test well! they are very light, and with a ASSISTANT SCANNER (they will not 100% replace other scanners) like: Clamwin or the Dragokas fork of Hijack this (or an online tool)

They become POWERFUL removal tools, the anti-maleware even caught 19 of 20 sample files I tested it with

A small note, they offer "direct" removal tools also, ideal for detected but tricky malware.

OVERALL 8/10, perfect as a secondary "Anti-Stuff" tool.

Similar, but their software is "still current" to: SIMPLE MACHINE PROTECT v1.9.4, although their ("NoVirusThanks") tools are all stand alone

Recommend accompaniment:

- ClamWinPortable AntiVirusTool
- HiJackThis - Dragokas fork v3 (or newest)
- Zemana AntiMalware Portable
- Spybot Portable

or (scanners using online databases)

- Panda online scanner tool
- VirusTotal online scanner tool
