Free Virus Removal Tool Help Finds Missed Viruses
The fact is no antivirus will ever achieve 100% detection with 0 false positive. Even if it does, it won’t maintain at that perfect score in the next test. Therefore you should not fully trust your antivirus but use it only as a reference. One good example is a Remote Administration Tool such as DarkComet encrypted to bypass antivirus detection. I am glad that some of you found and clean the DarkComet infection from your computer using the DarkComet RAT Remover tool when your antivirus failed to detect it in the first place. So if your antivirus says that your computer is clean, don’t think that your computer is definitely free from any malware. It is always better to play safe by using a password manager or a keystroke encryption software to prevent from any possible keylogger capturing what you type on your keyboard.
The Sophos Virus Removal Tool creates a log file in the application data or program data folder, depending on the version of Windows that your computer is running. You can find the log file (SophosVirusRemovalTool.log) from the following path: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\Logs\.
It also comes with command line support that requires UAC elevation by running the SVRTcli.exe file from C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\ folder. There are several command-line options that can be passed to the command-line tool such as -yes to prevent from asking for confirmation before cleanup, -reboot to automatically restart the computer if required for cleanup, -uninstall to remove the tool after scan and cleanup is complete. You can specify the -help option to display the text help for more command line options.
