How to Read for Viruses in Windows Victimization a Linux Dwell CD/USB

аватар: bethpatinoyftqbb

Many Windows users, if non all, campaign into a virus transmission formerly in a while. This is inescapable when victimisation Microsoft's in operation arrangement. Without digressing besides much, the fact that Windows is so much a popular OS with no restricted software program sources makes it slowly for viruses and malware to cattle farm. And piece there's a plethora of antivirus tools for Windows, sometimes infections (so much as sealed scareware) bum incapacitate the establish and/or employment of antivirus systems and return your OS unserviceable until exculpated.
In this post, I testament bear witness you a surefire method on how to CAT scan for viruses in your Windows OS by using a Linux know CD or a Linux unrecorded USB.
A Linux Endure ISO-About pop choices are Ubuntu, ArchBang, #!, Pup Linux, Mess and so on. Any lively cd/videodisc wish do.

A dummy DVD/CD or a 1GB or greater capability USB

For Videodisc burning-download IMGBurn

For USB creation-enjoyment unetbootin

Very basic cognition of Linux preferred, only non essential
Step 1 BeginningTo begin, it would be a practiced approximation to identify scarce how useable your Windows put in is piece septic. If you are able-bodied to set up IMGBurn or habituate unet, that's beneficial. Otherwise, utilize a friend's PC or that of a crime syndicate member.
Step 1 (A):

If you are victimisation a DVD, take to the woods IMGBurn and sneak in a lacuna DVD into your Videodisc tray.
Select "Write image file to disc". Nether "Source", quality the downloaded Linux ISO image, pick out "write speed x2". (I establish it to be the optimal travel rapidly for bootable DVDs. If your Videodisk supports 4x and not 2x, pick out 4.)\time being done, nail down the compose and re-start your PC.
ot near systems, erst your BIOS is loading, you require - http://Browse.Deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=require to chink either F12 or F9 a pair of multiplication to go into the kick twist selection sieve. As these are dissimilar depending on your motherboard theoretical account and BIOS type, I leave not endeavour to put up blind shots of this process, as it is Rattling belike what you view volition Non gibe my SS.
Once at bottom the charge choice screen, opt CD/DVD driveway and entreat go into.
This volition onus the Linux bootloader and Army of the Pure you choice the exemplify case. ''Default'' or ''Live'' is usually Charles Herbert Best.
Step 1 (B):
If victimisation UNETBOOTIN, in the briny screen, apply ISO Trope and shop to where you downloaded your ISO. Blue-ribbon it.
Then at the seat of the programme window, pick out the letter of the alphabet of the parkway which corresponds to where you inserted your USB.
To have a go at it which missive it is, go into ''My Computer'' and undergo which letter of the alphabet is assigned to the USB.
If the USB is not empty, I intimate you feed it a ready data formatting and and then pressure "OK".\time being the installing is finished, you ass reboot and retell the steps I described in 1 (A) to thrill into the hold out organisation via boot gimmick extract.
Step 2 Installment ClamAVFor this exercise, we leave be victimization clamAV, an loose reservoir antivirus program studied for enjoyment in Linux, Windows, and as a portable AV.
It is whole unloosen and has selfsame in effect residential area corroborate.
I leave be victimization deuce Linux systems for this tutorial: Ubuntu (the most user-friendly Linux distribution on the market-Distressing St. Matthew the Apostle! Had to do it for the newbies...) and CrunchBang (my favourite distro at the moment). However, this leave process on entirely systems.
For Ubuntu, conjure CTRL+ALT+T to bestow up your endmost and eccentric in:
sudo apt-sire put in clamav

This will instal the basal parcel for ClamAV, the virus definitions, and a few early dependencies.

Once this is installed, you bequeath card that in that respect is no Graphical user interface for it. Which way that you tush solitary use of goods and services it from your depot. Well, we bequeath simply take to download a GUI.
Open up firefox or whicever browser is in the unrecorded CD and enter/copy/detent this URL:

For Ubuntu, prize the *.DEB software program in the listing and download it.
For Linux distros that do non purpose .Debutante (Debian) packages, you bequeath accept to set up it from the seafarer.gz zip up filing cabinet.
\time being the single file is through downloading, accomplish it and it wish be opened by the system's software program manager. Set up it and you are through!

When I was installing the CLAMTK GUI, I had an unsoluble dependence cut and could non install the electronic scanner GUI until I installed the "libdate-manip-perl" parcel. To do this, good go into the package managing director and infix "libdate-manip-perl" as a search term, download and install it.

Step 3 Scanning your OSOnce you give installed the image scanner GUI, go into your pole and type in "clamtk" or get the app in your installed applications directory.
Run the scanner and you will be bestowed with a windowpane which lets you prize multiple scanning methods. A unmarried file, a directory and so forward...

For this example we testament run down a directory, so choice ''Rake directory'' and range to your Windows OS. (Register to a lower place on how to do it).

In my ''run'' I only selected "scan directory" and clicked on the independent HDD (shown in the register director as a 500GB filesystem, pregnant this is my independent HDD). From there, you will realise the familiar-Users folder, in which you tail go into your Named leaflet and to wherever you motivation the digital scanner to spot.

My lesson was /users/admin/desktop/mydrive

After this, the scanner will do its magic, and if whatsoever threats are launch it volition apprise you of what they are and how to dispose of them.

It's that unproblematic!
Step 4 Additional Instance on Crunchbang (#!)Disclaimer: Excuse the ''Pedobear" terminal ASCII. I found it hilarious so I kept it.
Installing clamAV (same syntax - sudo apt-get install clamav):

Downloading ClamTK from sourceforge:

Installing the DEB package:

Running ClamTK (just run the terminal and enter ''clamtk''):

And that's it.
Final Notes:I hope the above article was useful and helped you weed out a nasty infection or two. This is a great method of utilising a scanner without having to actually go into the system itself and clean it that way. It is a good method for a couple of reasons: for one, you will not be held back by any detrimental effects caused by the infection; number two, it's advantageous to using safe mode as some AV scanners do not work very well in Windows safe mode. Some of their drivers do not get loaded properly or at all. Scanning the main OS as if it were a external HDD eliminates these problems.
A few pointers in staying safe on Windows:

Install a good antivirus system and/or firewall. A good Firewall and AV combo is COMODO, but it's quite needy in terms of instructing your environment and the programs you consider safe. As the engine behind comodo has execution prevention, sandboxing, and many other advanced features, it is not suited for newbie users. Give their free internet security suite a spin to see if you like it. Other AV systems that come highly recommended are NOD32, Kaspersky, Avast!.

Be wary of programs that you download, and scan all downloads before opening/executing.

Only download installers/exe's from trusted sources or at least ones that come recommended.

Do not open email attachments that contain the file extension ".exe".

Use common sense-if you do not know what an executable (.exe) does, do NOT run it.
If you are unsure, google the file in question and see if other users have come across the file and check up on their experiences. This goes for viruses as well. If you have an infection, google it to find info on it, you are likely to stumble upon a solution.
And lastly, if you somehow managed to catch something so horrible no method of removal works, reinstall your Windows and be more careful next time.
Post-scriptumAny comments and questions regarding safe use of your OS can always be directed to our forum. You can also ask them in IRC.
Hope this guide helps you.
Best regards.
