A small tool that will help you protect your system from malicious worms and trojans
Windows Malware Protection (or "Wimp" in short) is a freeware software tool that will help you protect your system from malicious worms and trojans.
Wimp was initially designed to remove the many common "flash drive" viruses, i.e. those that spread through USB flash drives; as of now, Wimp detects and removes 11 of these "flash drive" viruses.
Although the number of detected viruses may seem small in comparison to the huge number of viruses on the Internet, Wimp has several mechanisms that make removal of other viruses by other specialised software much easier.
Give Wimp a try to see what it's really capable of!
