    Users can download programmes for removal of botnet malware from their computers, such as EU-Cleaner from “Avira” and EU-Cleaner from “SurfRight”, as well as DE-Cleaner System Rescue DVD – software for removal of malicious files.


    The website also contains links to other online scanners with which the users can check their systems by themselves.
