RegRun Reanimator is a handy application that increases the security of your computer. This powerful tool will help you remove infections of various kinds from your system, including those generated by spyware, Trojans, worms, adware, and other types of malware.

The thing that makes RegRun Reanimator stand aside from the crowd of anti-malware and security tools is the fact that it performs the actual malware detection and removal job remotely, through a user agent that sends a report file to the developer's server where that report will be analyzed. Then the result of the scan and the solution for malware removal (the so-called “cure file”) will be received by the user by mail. In my case, it took an entire day to receive that e-mail, but it usually should take a lot less. Anyway, the fact that it does its job mostly remotely means that RegRun Reanimator is also very small, lightweight, and neat. The agent's interface is also very simple-to-use and straightforward, as it comes as a wizard that guides the users step by step through every part of the main malware removal and anti-malware protection procedure.

RegRun Reanimator can also protect against new malware infections by disabling the auto-run feature of removable drives, therefore stopping the spread of the rather common autorun-based infections.

To sum it all up, RegRun Reanimator is a neat and reliable anti-malware tool that comes with some cool advantages which other similar protection utilities don't offer, and, best of all, it's also completely free.
