Stuxnet is an infamous malware that was wreaking havoc back in 2010 and 2011, as it made use of a new method of propagation: it used the LINK shortcut files on USB drives to automatically distribute and execute malware, and infect the vulnerable systems. Though nowadays Stuxnet is largely countered by any antivirus and anti-malware tool, situations when it causes active infections can still occur. For such cases, this neat little tool called StuxnetRemover is recommended.
StuxnetRemover is a very simple and straightforward application that detects the Stuxnet rootkit drivers and other files created by the Stuxnet infection, and removes them from the system, clearing your computer of the Stuxnet/Tmphider problem.
Furthermore, Stuxnet Remover is also capable of detecting and erasing any other malicious LNK and TMP files stored on removable media such as USB sticks.
Last but not least, Stuxnet Remover is also compatible with all known antivirus software, so you can use it next to your default antivirus without worrying of conflicts or other similar issues.
In conclusion, Stuxnet Remover looks like a decent choice for looking for Stuxnet infections on your computer and removing them, but since it also hasn't been updated since 2010, I'm not so sure about its reliability and accuracy. Anyway, it's free, so it may be still worth a try after all.
