Analysis before starting the operating system.

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

So far an offline scan function hasn't been needed, especially with the self-protection and anti-rootkit components, however if such a function is required I am sure they will provide one.

I've seen systems that were so full of crap that you couldn't run any program, not even the portables... I think this option should be taken into account. Thank you very much for your answer. Best regards.

If a system is that screwed up, I would not trust anything less than a reformat after saving and scanning data.

For me this is always the last option, although Windows has improved a lot and allows reinstalling the system while keeping the data.

I'm sorry, but I forgot about this application that was developed by you some time ago. I apologize again for creating this theme.

Yes, Chameleon has proven quite powerful in the past.  It isn't in use with Malwarebytes today except for its self-protection driver, however I'm sure they would update it for the current version of Malwarebytes if the bad guys start trying to block Malwarebytes again the way they used to.

Agreed, I try to avoid a format if possible, if only because I hate to lose.  Unfortunately sometimes it is the only option, but only as a last resort.

It also occurs to me that you can have an analysis option on a cmd like EEK has but logically make it easier to use.

They probably wouldn't publish a CMD based scanner for home use just to avoid cannibalizing their technician and business products.
