I see a lot of computers with nasty infections and this site has many great tools for fixing them, and many people who suggest a range of great techniques. Some suggest booting with XPud, some with Kaspersky or other rescue CD's. Some suggest trying to get into safe mode.
But I'd like an AV tool which I can run from my Linux Mint thumb drive, and which will fix infections on the Windows hard drive. I'd like it, because Linux Mint live seems to work on most machines, and it comes with text editors and other tools.
For example I have a new looking Toshiba on my desk right now, with the main Windows OS completely locked up. It won't start in safe mode, and it won't run the Kaspersky rescue CD in full mode or text mode, but has started just fine from my Linux Mint Thumb stick.
Of course I can inspect the main drive and look for suspicious folder and files, but I'd like to find something a bit more systematic.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
