I was thinking of using Linux to download and scan files before putting them on my windows folders, but what exactly are my options here to screen files before downloading them?
Awhile ago, I had a really weird trojan which didn't really have any effects or anything, but in my temp folder there was a copy of the rar with what SAS picked up as a trojan (While MBAM and Avast never picked up anything.) and SAS couldn't remove it until I manually put it into the recycle bin and deleted it (And SAS didn't pick it up again in Complete scans after deleting it)
It was really weird and hard to describe, and might as well been a false alarm since I didn't notice any effects on my computer (But it didn't pick up the trojan in the directory of the files of the rar itself???)
However, for future reference, I would like to screen files before I download them, particularly with SAS.
Anyways, what advice do you have?
