I was wondering: When an anti-virus application detects a virus and the file(s) affected is/are Windows system files, is it a good idea to
1) reboot with a bootable USB keydrive running eg. Linux + ntfs-3g, and
2) recover those files from a Windows DVD as an alternative to the Windows Recovery procedure (in case the user hasn't built a Windows Recovery in a long while)?
It seems faster/easier to just recover the original files from a DVD than restoring the whole disk from a trusted restore point, but maybe there are other issues?
