Rogue Remover Abandoned for MBAM?


Recommended Posts

Is RR still in development at all? I've noticed it hasn't been updated (program or database) in a very long time and when you released the new version of MBAM with the updated zlib.dll, which RR also uses, it got no update. I was just wondering if it's only use now would be for the immunization/removal of older rogue programs, or if it will be updated to detect newer threats in the future.

The problem with newer rogue applications is they employ the use of stronger malware to stay embedded in the system. RogueRemover has never been effective against these rogues. It can prevent the installation of many of them, but can not help with removal.

To answer your question, RogueRemover the application will no longer be updated but the database will be.

Which is a shame, because the malware that RogueRemover found and removed was some that was in a tv advertisement (Finally Fast). So I can easily see that as being a threat since it's been advertised on tv in recent months.

I kept wondering if Finally Fast was rogue, i deeply suspected as much (I remember when eacceleration/stopsign advertised their crapware on tv).

They were about as much fun as watching Billy Mays comercials:
