"Do not" rely on these Standalone App's Alone.
They are not Anti-Virus. They are Bogey sniffers.

Detection rate isn't as high as I had hoped. But, this, run in combination with Malwarebytes and SAS (and then followed up with CF if necessary) really just made my life easier - my malware computer throughput just increased twofold!

As for running an .exe file while infected, you don't have to do it in Safe Mode, or use RKILL, KILLBOX or any other type extra, just simply rename the .exe file to a .com file and run it like normal!
(i.e. programname.EXE to programname.COM) Windows will run it like it's an executable file (because it is!)

CyberDoc999 thought you where a pro ? run it in safe mode. If a virus still runs at start up you must kill it google Rkill & FixNCR.reg & fix.inf --- these tools will allow a exe file to run after a viris has disabled any type of .exe file to run

Today's version (05/27/11) seems to be broken. It won't run. It doesn't even display its own icon. Keep the version that was issued on 05/25/11.
