The Malware Removal Team of Hack Forums is here to help you remove malware, viruses, RATs and any other malicious software you may have on your computer.


Originally the group was known as the HJT Team, or the HijackThis Team, but it was then slightly modified and named the Malware Removal Team, or MRT. HijackThis was formed by Valiant on June 17th, 2010, while the name change to the Malware Removal Team came about in December of 2012. In August of 2013, the Malware Removal Team team decided to split into two separate groups: one group for graduates and the other for students. They were the only group on Hack Forums to have a section that all members of Hack Forums could view. In this section, users who believed their computer may have been infected with a virus were able to follow a set list of instructions and then make a thread that would help them disinfect their machine (after following instructions from a graduate). Upon being a graduate of the course, the members were given a special award- the MRT Graduate and could officially help members with their issues in the appropriate section.

Current Status

The group was deleted by Omniscient as a result of a conflict in interest over where he expected the group to go and the realism of the MRT project.
