Not heard of this before, has anyone tried it ? If so what did you think of it ?

It has quite a large number of options in several tabs which look very useful :) I havn't tried it yet though, as i just found out about it and DL'd it.

I think the name should be changed to something like for eg, Universal VMalware Sniffer, as it supposedly does a Lot more then just sniff out Viruses.

Universal Virus Sniffer

Developer: Dmitriy Kuznetzoff
Small selection of info from various files it comes with.



Q: uVS? What is it?

A: uVS is a powerful antivirus removal tool designed to ease the process of detecting and
eliminating unknown 0-day viruses, rootkits, and bootkits.
It's NOT designed to replace your antivirus!.


You can easily detect ANY type of rootkits/bootkits.


You can virtualize your registry to kill ANYTHING you want.

Other stuff on there too, but as it's in Russian i'm not sure what they all do, and didn't have to translate etc. Maybe someone can enlighten us ;)

I have tried. Nothing special but quite interesting positioning as an "universal tool". In fact you can easily destroy the system not only cure it :) And in fact - you can do almost the same with ERD Commander or some another LiveCD.

3.85 is the last free minor update. All updates are paid. Current version is 3.85.21.
Safe files hash database is paid too.
Cost per one update is 0.0002 BTC.

I think UVS is the most useful antimalware tool to use with WinPE
