Some freeware to add to my computer cleanup toolkit

10 days ago

I managed to stumble into the organization phrozen and learned they have some useful tools it seems. In particular I’m interested in Winja which is utilizing VirusTotal for checking files against MANY antivirus scanners. This will be convenient when I’m
checking lots of files.

I will say that VirusTotal can and will scare user who haven’t used it before, you need to understand that there are 66 different antivirus scanners available on VirusTotal and many of these scanners have biases and very different rules on what they call a threat. Since VirusTotal only offers a true of false-like result for these you can often see the less popular Antivirus scanners will report known good files as malicious or as a threat. Virus total can also provide an interface for file information that is a bit more accessible (as well as portable) than what windows offers in explorer. You can easily see the signer of the file if it has one and then do research on that signer so you can arrive at your own conclusion of the executable’s safeness virus total also provides an easy way to vote away a false positive but you shouldn’t rely on this information alone.

In short, always do your own research but tools like these sure make the process faster.

I plan to use this tool in addition with dozens of other tools (some freeware and some paid) for cleaning up customers computers at my computer repair shop. Let me know if you know of other tools and if you like this post be sure to upvote it and I will share more of the tools I’m using to help my customers.

There are a couple ways to use these bots. Profit and exposure. You can only vote once on your own post they give the opportunity to have an extra vote from a decently high sp account for more money. These factors raise your visibility a lot.

If you are only interested in profiting from these type of botst then you are not getting the bigger picture. However if that is your only interest, this may help:

There is a lot of math involved in what you are attempting here. You .09 may not be there by the time you get paid out. :)
