Hello billpennock,


I have moved this topic from the Logs forum as this topic contains no logs.


There is documentation on the tools, but it's not readily available to normal members. Have a look at this post and the following post by quietman7: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/504283/understanding-computer-scan-results/?p=3130012

Information related to any of farbar's specialized tools (i.e. how they work, what you can do with them, writing scripts, what log results mean, etc) is not provided in public forums. One reason for not engaging in such discussions is to safeguard and protect the integrity of our tools from malware writers. They read public forum topics looking for clues (knowledge) on how to circumvent our tools and removal techniques. We don't want to provide any information they can use against us so we deliberately do not provide specific information on the specific inner workings of our tools and how we use them in areas where attackers can see that information. As such, our discussion in public areas is limited and sometimes may appear vague or not fully address a specific question so it should not be taken personal.

Since this is the case, it is recommended that those desiring to learn about malware removal techniques, specialized tools and understanding logs generated by them, enroll in one of the various Unite Schools which offers such training in private areas of the forums not viewable to the general public.
