The Internet is, nowadays, quite full with malware, and it is a good idea to protect your computer from it, by installing various software solutions and regularly scanning the contents of your hard drive.
About:Buster is a small-sized program that was developed specifically to aid people in scanning their entire system for spyware such as CWS.HomeSearch, CWS.MfPlay, and CWS.SeDLL.
The upper hand of a portable app
You can easily skip the installation process, as this product is portable. As a result, unlike installers, it is not going to update the Windows registry or hard drive without your permission.
Another important aspect that is worth mentioning is that you can place the program files to a USB thumb drive and from there, run About:Buster on any computer you come in contact with.
The scanning process and other available options
First and foremost, it is important to keep in mind that this piece of software is not a removal tool. It will simply scan the contents of your PC and enumerate all the malicious files it finds.
In order to start this process, you are required to click the “Begin Scan” button, and just let the program do all the heavy lifting. During this process, you can view in the main window in real-time the path it is checking and a list with all the items that have been infected by an AboutBlank variant.
Last but not least, you should also know that administrator rights are required in order to run this tool and, after finishing the scan, it is going create a TXT file in the utility’s directory with the logs.
A last assessment
CPU and memory usage is low at all times, which means that it is not going to put a strain on the computer’s performance. Jobs are completed in a fair amount of time, while our tests did not reveal any hangs or freezes.
All things considered, About:Buster is a pretty decent piece of software which lets you know if your computer is infected with variants of the AboutBlank virus. However, you might want to try another one, which can also remove these malicious traces.
