I have a Raspi 2 mounted with sticky tape on top of one of those slide-in HDD docking stations for exactly this. Uses a read-only filesystem and isn't connected to the network. Once a week I'll drop new virus definitions to it via a USB drive then format the thing before I pull it. Cost effective, but not the most scalable thing in the world.

The best thing to do is have a separate physical system for this type of task, and either maintain a recovery environment on it or use boot CDs. If you install an OS on a hard drive in this system, make an image of it and restore from that image (or just reinstall the OS) if you think things are compromised - this is obviously much easier if you use ...

Most Linux LiveCD/LiveUSB disks will boot and not even mount a hard drive without you explicitly telling it to. Even after mounting, the live environment won't run any executables (where virii exist) without you explicitly running them. Then, within that live environment, you can install ClamAV, mount the disk, and run a scan on the data. From the live ...

You probably cannot "fix" it, since McAfee does not support that version. The particular check which fails is in the script which you ran, in a chunk that looks like this: installFromHere() { cd `uname -s`-${OSVER}-${PACKAGE_ARCH} 2>/dev/null || cd `uname -s`-NAI-${PACKAGE_ARCH} 2>/dev/null if [ $? -ne 0 ] then terminationMsg 7 "no ...

If you want only basic level protection for your system then there is no need to download any other 3rd party antivirus software in your system. For a more advanced level of protection you can go for some free version of Antivirus software like Immunet, Avast or Avira. They usually do not effect performance very much, and they're free.

Can a virus window popup occasionally on a clean system? Yes. If the system is web browsing, and the system is clean of malware, the web content may still contain HTML code that causes the browser to pop up a window. This can happen even if the system has no malware on it. Are my virus checkers mistaken and I have a virus? Maybe. My guess is, no. ...

Honestly, your best bet is to backup your files to USB or DVD storage and reinstall Windows, wiping all of your old files. I know it's painful process, but in the end you'll have a GUARANTEED virus free system. No other method of A/V scanning can claim same. You could also try Kaspersky Rescue CD - it's different since it doesn't work from your infected ...

for me Immunet and Avira works best with windows defender without letting my system slow. Cloud based antivirus solution provides an extra layer of protection to your PC without slowing it down.

It depends on which Surface tablet you own because Surface 2/RT runs a different version of Windows than Surface Pro/Pro 2/Pro 3. Surface 2/RT is very smooth and lighter defender work very well for 2/RT surface so it does not require any additional protection software. But surface 8 pro designs for both device and laptop, in this case defender only able to ...

I have seen such "wrong alarms" many times in Avast and Kaspersky after removing a virus. Remove it manually from inside the program or clear all logs. Sometimes they don't get removed, but in my case they disappear after some days. Here are pathes of Avast log files and how to clear logs. To recover after Win32/Ramnit malware follow these steps (provided ...

There is unfortunately no known solution available to repair or recover files affected by CTB Locker. Once the files are encrypted, they cannot be decrypted without the key. CTB Locker uses a varying algorithm to encrypt the files and thus cannot be decrypted using a fixed pattern or algorithm. Some data may be recoverable using low level recovery ...
