Doing virus removal I get allot of calls from people who believe their computer is infected. It's usually a program or browser toolbar that they don't know where it came from, it just showed up one day. And sometimes it turns out to be adware / malware. One of the best tools I've found for removing programs like these is the Junkware Removal Tool by Thisisu.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) is no frills, bare-bones program for removing some of the more popular and notorious junkware / adware programs out there. JRT uses just a command prompt window for a user interface, no features or options here. It first creates a backup of the registry and then scans the system processes / services, files / folders, registry keys / values and browser plugins. And when done, it creates a text report on the desktop and opens it up.
Here are just a few of programs JRT removes:
24×7 help, Advanced System Protector, Ask Toolbar, Blekko, Browserprotect, Browsersafeguard, Conduit, Driver Pro, Driver Cure, Inbox Toolbar, Incredibar, MoboGenie, MyPC Backup, MyWebSearch, NewTab, Omniboxes, OoVoo Toolbar, PC MightyMax, PC Optimizer Pro, PC Performer, PC Speed, Maximizer, PC Speed Up, PCFixSpeed, PCSafeDoctor, Search Protection, Strongvault, SysTweak, TopArcadeHits, Visualbee, Wajam and Yontoo.
JRT requires no installation, just download and run. And it automatically checks for a new version every time you run it, so you will always have the latest version. JRT is freeware, so if you find it useful, please make a donation via PayPal. Just click on the Donate button at the bottom of JRT's homepage.
