ComboFix. An alternative to HDD Reformat

Combofix is a malware removing tool specifically designed for the purpose. It is a standalone application and runs without installation.

ComboFix specifically targets SurfSideKick, QooLogic, Look2Me or any combination of that group.

It also nicely picks out Vundo infections and clears some, but not all.

One of the better things it does is pick files recently created which can give clues to other infections. It's very robust too. You can use it to unhook any dll in the system32 folder. You can use it to delete up to as many as 8 files using its command line functions.

It deletes a bunch of files related to the infections above automatically and is updated fairly regularly.

But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :)
