NoVirusThanks updated their Malware Remover to version 3.0 with new features. The new detection engine is able to detect new and unknown malware even without up-to-date signatures (available with pro). This free utility is quite useful to detect and remove Trojans, spyware, rogue software, adware, and other malicious threats from your computer.

 Moreover, it is also possible to scan for system hijacks, browsers hijacks, hosts file hijacks and fix all modified parameters to original values.

The included mini privacy cleaner can scan for traces in temporary folders, java cache, flash player, and cookies (available only with pro version). Since most malware drop malicious files in temporary folders, this option should help in cleaning suspicious dropped files in temporary folders.

The following features are missing in the free version: Perform a system scan when Windows starts, automatically update signature database, Extraterrestrial Analysis (new detection engine), Heuristic scan, and Traces scan.
