Window's Defender and SAS.

Recommended Posts

To the best of my knowledge, no malware expert would ever recommend Window's Defender. However, techs may be wondering how much malware removal income they'll lose since Vista comes with Defender. Probably not much.

Case in point:

I just finished disinfecting a Vista system protected by Window's Defender. Vista would not complete its boot. "Explorer can't start. Your computer is shutting down". That message would appear before the programs began to load and about 5 seconds later a shutdown would initiate. In that 5 seconds I noticed an icon on the desktop for "VirusProtectPro" (Rogue antimalware application). At that point I knew the shutdown was likely being caused by a malware infection.

I needed to get control of the system, so I tried Safe Mode and Last Known Good Configuration to no avail. I now had no choice but to slave the drive and remove the malware.

I installed the drive back into the computer and all was now well with Vista. Since the registry is not scanned on a slaved drive, I loaded SAS and scanned the registry only:
