Rem-VBSworm for Windows was created by malware researcher and former employee at Panda Security Bart Blaze. Blaze noticed a certain kind of malware becoming, unfortunately, more prevalent: viruses are written in VBScript, Microsoft's scripting language designed for Windows, were invading computers by means of internet downloads and infected USB drives. To combat this, Blaze developed Rem-VBSworm for free, a tool that scans for, identifies and eliminates various well-known VBS infections.

The program is useful mainly for its Panda USB Vaccine Utility, which, once downloaded, works similar to an actual immune system within the drive itself: copies of known viruses are kept, and files being put on the drive are cross-referenced with the virus database. Such a tool quickly made Blaze's program very popular in the realm of Antivirus software.

The software can also do regular scans and cleanings of suspected viruses, as well as cleaning drives of infections and restoring files. The anti-malware tool is kept up-to-date with the latest viruses and possible infections via VBScript or Windows Host Script, such as Bladabindi, Excedow, Jenxcus, etc. Blaze keeps a self-updated log of the software's features and progress, adding his own tips and tricks for operation.

The antivirus software is lauded for being small and lightweight, as well as free. To contrast, many popular antivirus software suites can cost multiple hundreds of dollars, have regular subscription fees that must be paid, have clunky, outdated interfaces that are hard to use, or simply take up too much hard drive space and slow down your computer.

Blaze's VBSworm is simply a small program written in batch, which works to efficiently and quickly clean malware from the selected drives while also restoring any potential registry changes that were made to Windows in the process. The piece of software is also famous for its simplified user interface, which presents the user with simply a few options on how to go about remedying the virus, as well as a short tutorial for new users.
