And yes, that’s a question mark at the end of this post’s title.
I have been using Noob Killer since January 2008 and I find it very useful in cleaning spyware, malware, and virus infested Windows XP systems without reformatting the hard drive and reinstalling the operating system.
A while ago I was wondering where the Noob Killer’s executable went while I was copying the program from my flash drive to the computer I was working on. It turns out that it was automatically “cleaned” (deleted actually) by the computer’s anti-virus: McAfee’s VirusScan Enterprise.
I did a manual scan on a zipped Noob Killer to check and see the details of what McAfee detects in Noob Killer. Click the following image for the screenshot.
NOD32 and AVG does not detect Noob Killer or any of its files as a trojan. Will try to check with other anti-virus software. Ironically, I have to disable McAfee to use Noob Killer and clean a malware that VirusScan can’t detect in that computer’s hard drive.
