Could it be false positives? The process for getting it onto your portable media and running it is about the same regardless of program. It is a bootable linux flash drive with Sophos, Malwarebytes and Kaspersky all rolled into one. It's poor advice to recommend it. One of these computers is the one you are trying to repair, the other has the mbam-setup. I already scanned it with Avira and Malwarebytes, they detected it but the file cannot be eradicated.
There's a reason why it's the go-to tool for techies in malware removal. What is a solid virus protection program i can put on it to keep it protected from viruses from other computers? Many people including me, thinks it's not the case. Malwarebytes has demonstrated effectiveness through independent testing - which matches real world experience. Plug it in, select it as the boot drive and reboot, then just answer a few questions, then come back the next day. Prevention is what real time protection does. A decision was made by the owner to re-install Windows since there was very little to be lost by doing so.
You can even integrate your own tools. Personally I prefer to reinstall a system after I've found what has infected it and ideally the root cause of how it became infected. This is a little confusing, let me see if I have this right. Fingers crossed I never get worse, but that is just fingers crossed. WuLi I think you are suspecting either a Virus via the FlashDrive firmware, something that existed many years ago, or have a Microsoft document on the drive. But I do have a question for you. Did I say MalwareBytes Anti-Malware was a virus scanner? Do you know of any way to detect or remove infections from an external device.
That's exactly what I did when aswering trotter, I offered him some ideas for offline Av tools, ClamWin and a few others included. Personally I'd start with Malwarebytes, while I looked myself with Autoruns. I just installed a fresh copy of windows 7 and would like to scan the flash drive when I plug it into the laptop the next time. Malwarebytes should now have the latest update data, and you can verify it by launching the program. It does however prove the point that Clamwin is slow - it took 2m 21seconds to scan the memory, some processes, and 369 files.
If someone gave you the drive, or if it has some new software on it, scan it immediately the first time you plug it in. You clean-up, save what data can be saved without even being sure it is completely safe and disinfected , and the you do have to format and start everything from scratch. Our database file is stored in the following locations. It is these little changes that make me believe F-Prot will vanish in the night in a few years or less. But I do have a question for you.

After plugging in, she got a couple of viruses.
It acts after you are infected, it does not prevent an infection. Generally, getting rid of browser data will solve the issue. All known forms of malware that affect the mac rely on user actions-they are of the social engineering kind. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu. Kaspersky, Dr Web Cureit are both good choices, as mentioned by others. So please do not perpetuate a dangerous myth. In current Windows versions, nothing on an external drive opens automatically when you plug it in.
SuperAntiSpyware is a better option, limited too when it comes to detection, but at least it runs fast and has a customizable and friendly interface too. Although Comodo do have what is believed to be a command line scanner called Cavscan. Is it possible to run this program on another computer from a flash drive? This test of yours proves nothing in relation to its effectiveness. Thor Anti-Virus is sold on the AppStore and it is practically malware. System Security Just got a new Corsair 16g usb flash drive today. If you don't know your disk number check out the computer management disk management and there you can see the disk number assigned to each disk.
The only thing you need is an Antivirus package installed. It acts after you are infected, it does not prevent an infection. Fingers crossed I never get worse, but that is just fingers crossed. The simplest way to check is to browse and see which folder the Antivirus is in and use the correct one in the batch file.
