Update: The program IClean has last been updated in 2007. While it may still work on your system, it is highly suggested to user a different program for the job. You can try Virus Effect Remover for instance which is still in active development and provides similar functionality.
The first step to recover a computer system after a malware infection is the malware removal. That is, if you don't decide to format it entirely and start anew.
The removal of malware is usually done with the help of security software that is installed on the system or available. Some security software programs do a great job at removing malware but fail to remove traces that the malware left behind.
That's where IClean comes into play, a program designed to remove the traces left by malware that has already been removed from the system.
IClean is a portable application that can be run from anywhere including a portable drive or device. The computer program will then display information about the computer system in six tabs that are accessible at the top of the interface.
Several of these options could come in handy after a successful malware removal on the computer system. IClean is available at the developer's website and compatible with all Windows operating systems from Windows 98 to Windows Vista (and probably Windows 7 as well).
