Quote:Okay, so you're infected. What do you do?

Since a great disk like one that rhymes with "siren's boot cd" is not discussable here; I would suggest making a emergency boot flash drive based on this:

EDIT: The name of the awesome boot CD is "Hiren’s BootCD 14.1", Google will help you find a download site. Better than the one below!

Add MBAM, SAS, and a few on-demand AV programs. I also keep all of Sysinternals and Nirsoft utilities on it.

Your method is relying on the bootloader working on the HDD.

"Sirens" or "Hirens"? :) [Hiren's BootCD]

I would agree is a great tool though. Having an external "team" of utilities like that is one of the smartest ways though in my opinion. You can ensure that they are untampered with by the infections file on your system that way too when you go to use them.

Heh, Hiren's of course. It has a little warez, so I thought that was on the 'down low'. The rules say, "hint" about it!

Absolutely. You can't trust an infected machine, why boot from the infected disk? Malware can easily change the file name of the real MBAM .exe to something nefarious.

RE: The Best Method For Removing Viruses From Your Computer
No the rules are fine for discussion about it, but providing direct content or downloads to things that are related to warez are a different story with that rule. Not too strict about plain discussion though. I don't like to restrict knowledge by limiting it to a lesser discussion about the larger world of computers. It would be like keeping kids in a play pen and trying to teach them about the outside world. :)

Most of that stuff that they have there is deemed as freeware too, so I don't see it as such a bad thing anyway.

Cool. I don't like trying to encrypt what I'm *trying* to say! ;-)

Thanks for the info, I have Malware Bytes on my computer it seems to do good on keeping the virus's away. Well at least I think it does it's job. This actually is a good way so that no network ports are open for anything to connect. And it has minimal drivers running so you can find those deep hard to find virus's when performing the scan.
