Re: [K12OSN] Scanning WinXP for Malware from Linux



You can boot a live cd like Knoppix or Ubuntu and install clamav.  There
is probably also a GUI for it -- I think it's called clamtk or something
like that.

Is there anything available that will allow me to scan a WinXP hard drive for malware under linux? That is to say, boot to linux (e.g. on USB drive), mount the NTFS drive, and scan. I have a WinXP machine that I suspect is infected. The registry became corrupted and I was able to roll back to a prior, good registry so I can boot but the system is neither stable nor usable. This seems like a good approach if the software exists.
