Malware infection is very common in Windows PC. I have written about a number of tools till date that can prevent or cleanup malware infections. Today I will write about another very interesting tool called F-Secure Easy Clean. F-Secure is a major vendor in Antivirus Industry known for its excellent malware detection and prevention techniques. F-Secure uses several engines. Hydra, Gemini, Blacklight and Deepguard are F-Secure’s own engines. Aquarius is based on Bitdefenders engine + some modifications. F-Secure Easy Clean is an efficient portable tool from F-Secure Corporation that can detect & clean most common viruses, worms, rootkits and other types of malware in the wild. It used to come as a large portable software like Microsoft Safety Scanner or Norman Malware Cleaner that you needed to download every time for scanning with latest malware definitions. But recently [5 April 2012] a new version with a small installer size has been released with cloud-based detection database and network reputation lookup capability, which requires a Live Internet Connection while the product is in use. So, now you can use it anytime and it will remain always updated. It is now more like Emsisoft MalAware.
