Sophos updates free Virus Removal Tool
Posted on 15.10.2012
Sophos has updated its free Virus Removal Tool, now available here for download.


The tool, designed to work alongside an existing anti-virus installation, removes viruses, spyware, rootkits, and fake anti-virus programs from Windows machines.

The new version of Sophos’ Virus Removal Tool includes updates such as:
  • Improved scan status information
  • Options to run in safe mode
  • Ability to run on machines using proxy settings
  • Faster scanning times
  • Improved malware clean-up
  • Auto-update capabilities.
Several of these features, such as the auto-updates and faster scanning time, are a direct result of user feedback.
