In an effort to create centralized collections of links and eliminate all the redundant information posted and shared by many Experts here, this will attempt to collect links for MALWARE fixes in one spot to minimize load times on all the other question links.  

If you have additional items to add to this list, something needs a correction, or you find a link that is broken and needs updating; DO NOT POST IT HERE.  Post a question with COBOLdinosaur in the title or email me with the information.  I will delete the question and refund the point after I add the new information.

This is a collection from many end-users and Experts who have used them and found them helpful and informative.  There are various download sites for many of these, choose what works best for you.

Below is the index with short format links to the comment containing the information:
