Scanning a slaved drive.

Recommended Posts

I had a system that would boot but loaded full of Spyware and couldn't load SAS in Windows, so I slaved it to my laptop and scanned it with my version of SAS {fully updated}.

The scan found 68 infections and removed them. I then reinstalled the hard drive, booted and was able to work in windows and install SAS. I then ran a scan just to make sure, and then it found over 100 more infections.

My question is, why doesn't the slaved process take care of it all??

The likely case is that the items were registry entries - we don't load hives off secondary drives.
