BootIt EMBRI 4.00 02-WARNING: System may contain a virus!

Fri Jan 27, 2012 7:58 am

Hi,

I installed BootNOW...
I updated my relatively new machine with new Intel drivers, SATA and LAN.
And the KB2467173 Windows Update, MS Visual C++ 2010.
And then BootIt scared me...
BootIt EMBRI 4.00 02-WARNING: System may contain a virus!


Could this be a false alarm..?
What does the BootIt virus utility check..? Does it have a virus database...?

Means INT 2 is redirected outside the normal BIOS areas. Doesn't mean there
is one, but seems suspicious to me.

Hmmm...

I have never checked a BIOS for viruses. I'm now just using MS Security Essentials in Windows.
What is the best way to check it..?
Anti-Virus software that's bootable on a CD..?
:? Hirens Boot CD?

Can it be that there is a bug in the UEFI BIOS..?
I already have problems with (not having reliable) Legacy Mouse support in BIBM with this Motherboard... (ASUS P8P67 Deluxe)
When my Thrustmaster Warthog joysticks are connected, there is no mouse in BIBM...
