Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) is an on-demand scanner which can be used to find and remove trojans, along with other malware such as viruses, worms, rootkits, diallers and spyware.
While it will never win any prizes for its user interface, the program is intuitive and simple to use.
As there are daily updates, always ensure the software has been updated prior to scanning your PC. For those of a forgetful nature, you can set the program to warn about the database being outdated.
MalwareNET http://www.malwarebytes.org/malwarenet.php , which is an online database, revealed that nearly 20% of the total objects detected by MBAM were related to trojans.
Other features include: multiple-drive scanning; quick scanning; ignore list; quarantine (to hold threats prior to deletion or restoration) along with various settings to enhance performance of the program. FileASSASSIN is also included to enable deletion of locked files.
Another plus point is that MBAM rarely causes any conflicts with other anti-malware utilities. If you encounter problems that are not covered in the help section you can visit the Malwarebytes forum: http://forums.malwarebytes.org/
Avast! Free Antivirus is my new top pick for the best free antivirus software in light of recent developments. Avast has steadily been improving its detection rates over the past few years and now ranks with the some of the best. Avast has the most features of all the free antivirus with full real-time capabilities including web, e-mail, IM, P2P and network shields, boot-time scanning, and a behavioural blocker. The new version 6 brings even more features including an internet site ratings plugin, script malware protection and a limited (non-configurable) sandboxing feature. Although the sandbox is a very useful semi-automated security feature, the default settings involves a pop up to ask whether a software should be sandboxed for not - for the typical average user this can be slightly confusing though it can set to sandbox the software automatically. Lastly Avast is relatively light on resources. http://www.avast.com/en-au/free-antivirus-download
