I understand that ThreatExpert Memory Scanner scans memory objects however is this not the same as what MalwareBytes does or any other anti-malware?

Looking at the release date (March 1, 2008.) this appears to be an abandoned project

The biggest difference between any malware scanner is the dat files (signatures) it uses to detect the malware. No one scanner finds everything, that is why I use at least 3 different scanners on an infected machine,

"by using advanced techniques it is able to detect traces of these threats"

Sounds like a sales pitch, doesn't really tell us anything

Thanks. Not that I intend to start a thread on what each user uses but would you mind sharing the scanners you use? I know the most populates ones seem to be MalwareBytes, HitmanPro, ThreatFire, SuperAntiSpyWare, WebRoot, etc but am interested to know what the professionals use. –  PeanutsMonkey Nov 16 '11 at 21:10
    
Several different Boot AV discs, by Kaspersky, Microsoft System Sweeper, these remove the more difficult infections. once I clean offline using a boot cd, then I use mbam and SAS to clean up the leftovers. Some like Norton Power Eraser –  Moab Nov 17 '11 at 2:07
