Default OTL by OldTimer A Modern Replacement for HijackThis

Reading the other day about a worm that infects explorer.exe i followed a link to the Avast! forums (Avast! was able to detect but could not remove it) and came across this diagnostic tool which is called "HiJackThis on steroids". The guy who advice people how to get rid of malware at Avast! forums use this a lot along with Combofix as i noticed.
Anyway, many people might find this tool useful, especially the ones who go around and clean infected PCs all the time. Here you can find a tutorial on how to use OTL and here is the complete list of the antimalware tools they created at the geekstogo forum.
