SwatIT: Trojans, Worms and Bots Scanner

This is a program that will scan your files for Trojans, Worms, Bots and other Hacker programs. Swat It can detect and remove over 4000 different Trojan programs plus variants. It will not by default scan the contents of compressed files, neither does it provide background scanning. It is simply a "dumb scanner" with no intelligence or generic detection methods. SwatIT was released for those that simply can not afford to purchase a commercial program, but still need to clean their hard disk from known Trojan and bot infections. below are some of its screenshot you might want to see;

First thing you should do is to select the folder that you want scanned and then the applicaion will start performing the operation.

By default, the application will not scan the contents of compressed files but there is an option that allows you to change that. Check the "Scan inside archives (slower)" checkbox to enable this option.

As I've said before that this program has no intelligence or generic detection methods. Like most Scanning programs that are Reliant on File Signature Only, an undetected or unknown Trojan to Swat It's Signature File would go unnoticed and wouldn't give any alert. A point that you have to remember is that just because a scanner does not detect any Trojans, it doesn't mean that you don't have any. Trojans have a period after release in which they can be used for a short time until it becomes known and detection created for it. Want to try this one?, below is the link to download.
