SX Antivirus Kit Review
Let’s go into the details about each of these tools included in SX Antivirus Kit.
Autorun File Remover: On Windows operating system, we have a build-in feature called autorun.inf. It’s allows applications to run automatically from USB/CD drives. Viruses take advantage of this feature and use it to spread malware across the system as soon as you connect the USB to your computer. Autorun File Remover, like our freeware Autorun Deleter, will detect these autorun.inf files and remove them.
ExeScan: ExeScan is a freeware application that detects irregularity on portable applications. This program will scan a portable executable file for parameters like checksum verifications, size of various header fields, improper size of raw data, non-ASCII/empty section names, etc. There are scenarios where the malware developers might reverse the header and make it impossible to reverse using crash debugging tools. It can also detect the packer/compiler used to pack/build the target executable file. it uses Python modules to get the application to work.
Hidden File Finder: It’s a software application that will scan of hidden EXE, DLL, COM etc and show them in a list view. It has a Unhide Operation which you can quickly un-hide the files and folder quickly. Hidden File Finder uses multithreaded to quickly scan entire computer, drive or folder. You also have the option to Scan Online using Google Search or VirusTotal.
Net Share Monitor: It’s an application used to monitor your Shared Files from unknown users in the network. Net Share Monitor will detect any share folder access and notify you with the users information i.e. with the IP address, name & share file information. This application also has the ability to access Null sessions, which hackers use to access the machine.
Shell Detect: Shell Detect is an application that will detect the existence of Shell Code within a file or network packets. Malware developers hide the shell-codes and on opening the files it will run the code and infect your system. These kind of codes can use Zero day vulnerabilities, which normal security software will fail to stop.
Spy BHO Remover: Spy BHO Remover is an application used to remove malware hidden in Browser Helper Objects. BHO’s are spyware programs that monitor browsing habits and steal the users credentials silently. This application uses Online Threat Verification to identify malware BHO and removes them based on their behavior.

Spy DLL Remover uses Heuristic analysis and Online Threat Verification for deeper analysis of unknown Malware Threats. One of the features of Spy DLL Remover is called Advanced DLL Ejection which will completely remove malware from any running processes.
Stream Armor: A relatively unknown compatibility feature of NTFS, Alternate Data Streams (ADS) provides hackers with a method of hiding rootkits or hacker tools on a breached system – and allows them to be executed without being detected by the systems administrator. Stream Armor will detect those ADS and completely clean your system. It features multithread ADS scanner which will speed up the scanning process and it make use of Advanced File Type Detection to detect the file type of the stream.
Virus Total Scanner: VirusTotal is a free service that analyzes suspicious files and URLs and facilitates the quick detection of viruses, worms, trojans, and all kinds of malware. Virus Total Scanner make sure of this service and run a quick scan on your system. This utility can actually scan for the files without actually uploading them because it carries out a Hash based scan on VirusTotal.
