RunScanner 1.0 released! (out of beta)
« on: August 17, 2007, 02:04:48 PM »

RunScanner is a completely free windows system utility which scans your system for all configured running programs. You can use runscanner to detect autostart programs, spyware, adware, homepage hijackers, unverified drivers and other problems.




Very comprehensive autostart list

    * Scanning of 80+ hijack locations, hosts file editor, process killer, online malware/whitelist analysis.
    * Covers everything from Autoruns, HJT, Silentrunners and more.
    * Malware will find it harder than ever to hide.
    * Freeware.


For beginner and expert users

    Beginner mode:
      "Safe mode" : no changes can be made by the user.
      Targetted at novice computer users that want support from a forum or from a malware specialist.
      Beginners can upload or post a text of binary ".run" file. Experts can load it up into runscanner, examine it for malware   and mark entries for removal and repost it. The beginner can reload the file and it will automatically make entries for removal.

    Expert mode :
      Targetted at expert users, this is the most powerful mode.
      All delete, filter, export, lookup ... features are available.


Easier to use

    * Online malware analysis of results. (optional, not required)
    * Verification of authenticode signatures (Microsoft signed, signed by verified publisher, Whitelisted by online database )
    * MD5 hash calculation of files + online file rating
    * Online lookup of scanned entries. (Runscanner database + Google)
    * RunScanner makes it easier to determine which entries are likely to be malicious.
    * One executable, no installation required.
    * Backup / restore of deleted items.


Log analysis made easy

    * Saving and importing of text files to .run files (all information available)
    * A user with problems can save the .run file, an expert can mark the items that need fixing and send the .run file back to the user
    * Plain text file logging with only the items that need your attention.


Malware removal abilities and misc

    * Powerful process killer
    * Kill multiple processes at once
    * Kill and rename
    * Kill and delete
    * Delete at next reboot
    * Regedit jump
    * Explorer jump
    * Extended filters
    * Marking of items.

I suggest downloading the zip file ... especially if on dial-up like I am.    :)

Edit:

That worked very good and it found nothing ... well, nothing to worry about.    ;)

Well still, you never really know...

I mean what do we really know about the author of RunScanner, or even Lusher? For all you know they are bad guys...

You guys are way too trusting... I mean sure, you probably scanning it with Virustotal or something, but you really think malware these days won't be tweaked to avoid detection by them?


BTW I found a major bug in RunScanner, and as such a new update is available.

Runscanner changelog


Changelog 1.0.1 (Bugfix)
Fixed bug with AppInit_DLLs (Thanks to Lusher for reporting the bug)
