It rains, it pours many questions

Postby freddygolightly » Sun Sep 13, 2020 3:41 pm

I am trying to hunt down what might be a hidden or persistent trojan on my win7 box.

I was thinking of using trendmicro's rescue usb program which scans prior to boot and also scans the mbr.

https://www.trendmicro.com/en_us/forHom ... -disk.html

But I am thinking this could screw up BIBM? In using trend micro and other rescue av programs I think they often delete "viruses" without asking for permission.

I do not want to screw up BIBM install so maybe this is too risky to try? What are your thoughts?

Make a full disk backup using IFW, or IFL.

Then have at it with Trend Micro. If that clobbers BIBM, restore from the full disk backup.

Obviously if you have to do that, you won't have solved your original problem, but you will have been able to try Trend Micro with minimal risk.
