Best clean-up tool: Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool

In the aftermath of a malware attack, most users' nerves are frazzled. After all, in addition to an infected PC, there is the risk of losing important files. In the endurance test in AV-TEST's labs, Kaspersky's Virus Removal Tool demonstrated its qualities as an emergency tool, cleaning the most test PCs infected with malware samples in all the test rounds. For this, the freeware tool from Kaspersky is receiving the BEST REPAIR 2016 AWARD. 

 

Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool boasts some impressive features

The mission in the endurance test for the freeware first responders from the Internet was just as clear as it was grueling: rescuing, cleaning up and restoring the system in the aftermath of attacks of several hundred malware programs in different test scenarios. The best performance in all tests throughout the entire test period of one year was achieved by the Virus Removal Tool from Kaspersky, therefore the freeware rescue tool rightly receives this year's award.

"Following a virus attack, the system not only has to be freed of pesky malware threats, but important files also need to be rescued and restored. Kaspersky's Virus Removal Tool handles this task with flying colors."
