    I haven't been doing pc work for a while now but starting to do repairs and such on the side again. So what is the latest arsenal of removal tools required now? Here is what i have so far. And I know some maybe absolete now. So can you please help me fill in the gaps by removing absolete fixes and getting the ones I am missing to complete my arsenal of tools?

    appman 1.0 (view hidden processes including hidden windows, force them visible)
    aptman 4.0 (advanced process termination)
    bfu 1.00.9 (brute force uninstaller)
    ComboFix
    CWShredder 2.19
    Gmer 1.0.13
    HiJackThis 1.99.1
    DllCompare 1.0.0.127
    QooFix 1.04
    RootKitRevealer 1.71
    SmitFraudFix 2.250
    VundoFix 6.5.10
    WinPFind3U 1.0.42
    AVG Anti-Rootkit 1.1.0.42
    Delete Doctor 1.1
    DrWeb Cureit
    Deckards System Scanner
    Killbox

    Maybe . . .

    A Kaspersky scan
    ERUNT
    wscvcfix
    MGADiag
    Process Explorer

    Some of these have to be used with caution.

    Thanks. I didn't even realize that HijackThis was updated since the update check said I was current. So I went and grabbed the latest version which turned out to be from trend site and not the homepage site which was older.

    Now what is this one? wscvcfix because I couldn't find reference to it anywhere? Is it spelled wrong?
