      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Bart's PE e spyware

6 posts in this topic

Hi guys

 

Is there a way to make HijackThis or Cwsshredder "read" another system disk?

 

 

in order to integrate them in Bart's PE?

Hijackthis and CWShredder require access to the registry. If you run these utilities from within Win PE, you will not be accessing the target Windows installation’s registry. You would be accessing the Win PE registry.

 

I believe that this is being discussed at the 911cd forums in regard to adaware and spybot accessing a loaded registry from a target installation. I believe the approach is being tested with the load hive plugin.

I read a lot on 911cd

 

 

but i understood this

 

that ad-aware (so any other AV plugin) can't deal with registry run from bart pe...

 

is it right?

 

so i assume is useless for removing spyeware from registry... OUT from the system itself...

I read the 911cd forums alot too. My username on the 911cd forums is 'sam_i_am'

 

Unless the AV program can load the registry hive files from a target directory, then no, it cannot deal with a registry other than Win PE's registry. There are several users at the 911cd forums that have been working on a way to load and scan a remote registry hive, but I am unsure as to weather it works correctly.

 

There is a number of AV software that will work under Win PE: McAfee commandline scanner, F-Prot, Stinger and perhaps Symantec's prescan...but again, these will not load a remote registry hive.

 

Avast! antivirus has their own Win PE version that includes a modified version of Avast!'s antivirus. I do not know if it loads the remote hives or not.

 

Personally, I would not trust any spyware or AV scanner that needs to use third party programs or hacks to scan a remote registry.

 

McAfee has a standalone bootable AV scanner that is supposed to be able to load remote registry hives, but it is still in beta and I do not believe that it runs under Win PE.

hi trilobyte and thanks for reply

 

 

I knew about avst Bart CD.. is it what you talking about?

but i know it is not free (am i wrong?)

 

i made up a plugin for avast virus cleaner free...

what are your suggestions?

 

 

i own an italian site about tweaking and i would like to publish some suggestions to make a bart's Pe for virus cleaning...

 

the registry fact is bad news... so i think i will stuck with virus remover like stinger (i get autoupdate plugin) and avast virus cleaner (also autoupdate)

 

bye

Yes, I am talking about Avast Bart CD and yes it is payware. They do have a free trial/ beta test of it on their website.

 

Stinger is only for 40 or so viruses and Trojans. There is a plugin for McAfee’s command line scanner and Bart has made a GUI for it. However, a lot of people, including myself, have had trouble with Stinger and McAfee cleaning infected files from PE. I think this is because Stinger and McAfee are hard-coded to write a temp file somewhere in the system directory while they are cleaning a file. Since the system directory is read-only in Win PE, you get an error. This can be solved by unselecting the clean option and checking the delete option.

 

Sherpya has made a plugin for Clamav Antivirus Scanner with a Windows GUI. I have not used it much as I have found it to be a memory hog, I don’t know if it scans a remote registry hive.
