Modules manager

This function lets you to detect and delete infected memory objects.

The list shows all running processes in a treeview control. Each process is a branch of the tree. To list the modules loaded by a process, click the + button to the left of the process line, or just double-click the line. The branch will be expanded.


Choosing which modules to display in the list:

You can choose to hide the system protected files, all Microsoft files, or all signed files from the list by clicking the List settings button.

It will open a dialog box similar to the one in the picture below:

List settings

Select the radio button corresponding to the desired option.

If you select Show all modules, then all the modules will be shown.
However, you will not be able to delete or rename system protected files using UVK.

If you select Hide system protected files (Default), then only the non protected modules will be displayed.
If you select Hide all Microsoft files, then no Microsoft files will be shown.
If you select Hide all digitally signed files, then UVK will verify the digital of all files and display only the unsigned ones. 

All the processes will be shown, no matter which option you choose. The filter applies only to the modules loaded by the processes.

If you use the second or third option, and you suspect that the system or Microsoft files have been infected or replaced, check the aditional option Verify the file signatures. This will ensure only genuine files are hidden from the list.

Click Apply to refresh the list using the selected filter, or Cancel to cancel the operation

Module properties 

Check  Click the Go button, in the Process path line to jump to the corresponding process file location.

Check  Click the Go button, in the Module path line to jump to the selected module file location.

Check  Click the Google button, in the File description line to perform a quick google search using the selected module's file description as the keywords.

Check  Click VirusTotal report to get a VT report of the selected module. To get more info about the VirusTotal analysis, click here.

Check  Click Close (Esc) to close the info dialog box.


Deleting a module:

You can choose to move the selected module to the recycle bin, or delete it permanently by checking the desired option in the Deletion options area, in the upper pane.

Check  Move to recycle bin: The selected module will be moved to the recycle bin. If UVK does not succeed to move the module immediately, it will be blocked and scheduled to be recycled the next system reboot.

This is the recommended option, as it allows the quick recovery of the file, in case of mistake.

Check  Delete permanently: If you choose this option, the selected file will be permanently deleted. If UVK does not succeed to delete the file immediately, it will be marked for removal on reboot. This method can be more effective for stubborn files, but it does not allow the recovery of the module file.


Other options:

Check  Use the other options in the context menu to get more information on the selected modules.

Check  Click Refresh to update the process and modules list.

Check  Click Home or press Esc to go back to the welcome screen.
