Maybe an antivirus solution to clean completely and then to repair a Windows system using the tools offered by manufacturers as a malware infection?

Laboratory experts from AV-TEST gave the answer to this question through a very comprehensive test of endurance ten months (September 2013 - June 2014).

AV-Test lab has solved this problem in a test in which 10 major antivirus and 7 had special cleaning tools to clean infected systems not only, but also to completely repair the. Over the whole period, several malware families were tested repeatedly. Note that malware samples used were known manufacturers of all solutions tested and therefore ought to be clearly detected, however, but it was not many of them.

- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free, a solution recommended by several IT magazines;
- Microsoft Security Essentials, included in Windows;
- Five additional paid-known software solutions from Bitdefender, ESET, F-Secure, Kaspersky and Norton.

In addition, the following tools were also tested cleaning and recovery of the system;
