Does this do a better job than other methods and scanners? The reason I ask is that I have several virus specific scanners, and I wondered what would be the advantage of running several programs vs one or manual?

No offense, but I really doubt a simple program is going to remove this one. BUT I will say I am no expert.

can't say I've run into a live stuxnet infection to confirm, though I can say taking out a major worm in a corporate environment even with the right tool can be an extreme task. Particularly in the event that you have say 500 machines, and you miss one, the darn thing spreads out all over again, the only real way to do it is to take everything down, unplug the network cable from each system, then clean it up, repeat for each system.


Reason why that option isn't available in the nuclear facilities. It's a heck of alot more then 500 systems, and most likely they cannot all safely go down at the same time.
