RUBotted monitors your computer for suspicious internet Zombiebot activities

Quote
Overview

Malicious software called Bots can secretly take control of computers and make them participate in networks called “Botnets.” These networks can harness massive computing power and Internet bandwidth to relay spam, attack web servers, infect more computers, and perform other illicit activities.

Security experts believe that millions of computers have already joined Botnets without the knowledge of their owners. By using remotely-controlled computers, the criminals in charge of the Botnets try to remain anonymous and elude authorities seeking to prosecute them.

RUBotted monitors your computer for suspicious activities and regularly checks with an online service to identify behavior associated with Bots. Upon discovering a potential infection, RUBotted prompts you to scan and clean your computer.
Using RUBotted

To use RUBotted, just make sure that your computer has a working Internet connection. If your computer connects to the Internet through a home network, RUBotted can use your current network settings automatically.

If your computer connects to the Internet through a proxy server, then click Settings on the main screen of RUBotted to specify the proxy server settings.
Removing Bots

If a Bot infects your computer, the RUBotted system tray icon changes to alert you.

Because Bots are typically computer worms (malicious software that can propagate from one computer to another), you must scan and clean your computer with an effective antivirus program to remove them.

If you have an antivirus program installed, download the latest update and scan your computer. To scan and clean your computer for free, visit HouseCall online.
