    Tools for scanning for Crudware

    My current arsenal for clearing crudware off badly neglected PCs that the installed antivirus/internet security programs miss consists of:

    HiJack This
    CCleaner
    MalwareBytes
    Lavasoft Adaware
    SpyBot S&D
    Online PandaScan
    Kaspersky Internet Security


    Are there any other recommended free programs I should be using? Many thanks.

    decrapifier (for new machines, or new builds from restore partitions etc)
    Avira rescue CD (no need to have a working windows install to scan for viruses as its a linux live CD)
    Combofix (for the really tough stuff that MBAM doesn't shift)

    Microsoft Security Essentials does a fair job on malware and might be worth adding. No idea if it could be made into a portable app though.

    I use pretty much the same - only variants are:

    Rootkit - Anti-Rootkit | Free Rootkit Removal | Rootkit Detection - Sophos

    Portable Antivirus - Dr.Web CureIt! (nice to have additional antivirus)

    a-squared Emergency USB Stick files - a-squared Anti-Malware - all round scanner

    Autoruns Autoruns for Windows to manually weed out start-up items initially
