Best scanner for Malware? Keyloggers?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I have the latest version of NOD32 and update it and run it a couple
times per week. Is that a good scanner for Malware or is there a
better one that is primarily meant for Malware? What about keyloggers?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Spyware Blaster is a good free  one. It blocks malware by barring them
before hand.Iv`e used this one and Spybot Search & Destroy for years.

http://www.download.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html

rated 4/5 on that site.

Editor says:
"Despite the multiple tabs and variety of options, this utility
maintains focus on its sole task: keeping ActiveX-based spyware from
hijacking Internet Explorer and Mozilla. Wrapped in a no-frills yet
good-looking tabbed interface, SpywareBlaster is easy to both navigate
and operate. Additional features include the ability to disable Flash
animations, create a block list of troublesome DLLs, take a snapshot of
your system, and add customized ActiveX blockers for files not included
in the program's database. Like most adware-removal programs, it lets
you download the latest malware updates. We would have liked support for
other popular browsers, such as Opera, and the program offers little
help for PCs already infected with adware. Still, SpywareBlaster proves
a helpful preventative addition to any antiadware arsenal."

On-demand scanner(s):

Download David H. Lipman's MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL:
http://www.pctipp.ch/ds/28400/28470/Multi_AV.exe
http://www.pctipp.ch/downloads/dl/35905.asp

English:
http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives/2008/01/09/scan-your-computer-with-multiple-anti-virus-for-free /

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to
go through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in
Normal Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web
site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and
Reboot the PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files
or you can download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you
have downloaded the files needed for each scanner you want to use, you
should reboot the PC into Safe Mode [F8 key during boot] and re-run the
menu again and choose which scanner you want to run in Safe Mode.  It is
suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more
comprehensive PDF help
file.
