Until a recent update to FRST  I've been able to use it in windows PE rather than the built in windows recovery environment.

I boot PE via PXE and clean the system without having to boot to recovery.

 

Is there anyone in the development team that can steer me towards what FRST is using to determine when it's running in recovery mode so that I can fix my PE for it to work again?

Hello,

 

Is there a particular reason you don't use FRST in normal mode? The FRST in RE/PE has a very limited log without Addition.txt and it is meant to be able to boot to Windows and run a full log. For recent infections and functions the log in RE/PE will not get updated unless a malware create boot issues.

 

Anyway, please download and run try the latest FRST (dated today) and tell me how it went.

Hi,

 

Thank you for your response. :)

 

I use it as the first part of my arsenal to clean off as much malicious software as I can before continuing to normal mode to mop up the rest.

 

Both the 32 and 64 bit versions work again. Thank you very much!
