    Just built 3.5 DVD last night...

    Facing a BSOD issue, which says Run Checkdisk and Run Virus Check as part of message (which is nice, of course, because you can't do either unless you build a disc like this!)

    Anyhow, I'd like to run a "current" virus scan - it seems Kaspersky is offline currently. Tried Bitdefender's online scanner, but it needs a current version of Flash... Which I can't figure out how to pull off! It wants to automatically install it to Drive X - which is the UBCD/DVD.

    Thoughts? Suggestions? Either on how to accommodate Flash or another "live" online scanner?


    (If there's another post that answers this - shoot me a link please. I'm not having an easy time searching through posts using the UB shell! Thanks)

      An online scan is not the way to scan within UBCD4Win for a number of reasons... the main one is that you won't be loading the host system's registry. Use the included antispyware/antivirus scanners and update them before you build the disk. If you have disk size issues, not unusual with the size of the updates needed for the included AV/AS's, then disable other utils that you won't be needing during the cleanup process.
      Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....
