Yo, I don't know anything about the recovery disk, but since it seems as if responses are pretty slow around here I'll just say that I believe I saw someone on youtube using kaspersky for this very problem, I imagine the rootkit might be more advanced since then but I'd say it's definitely worth a go. I think he made use of the disinfect function in order to prevent the system perhaps becoming unstable. In regards to whether Kaspersky would have caught it I imagine it would have, as I understand it they're renowned for very quickly getting signatures, certainly I've seen someone test some zero access rootkit against Kaspersky a while back. As I say I'm not too knowledgeable on the matter, I'd say there was no harm in trying.
Hello, I've got a HP dv6 pavilion laptop with 64 bit Window 7 which is fine or at least so I believe. Anyway I wanted to check out this recovery disk as I know someone who's having a bit of trouble with their PC and thought I ought to check I know how to use it before popping over, anyway, it boots up fine looking just like screen shots I've seen and I tell it that it's Windows 7 rather than Windows Startup. If I access the internet while it's making the swap file it's all dandy but it seems like when it tries to configure the network it messes with it, the connection is alright for a bit after as it gets the updates but it then starts downloading very slow, I can't get anywhere on the internet and eventually the update fails. I was wondering what this might be about, I also notice that Kaspersky makes a folder for itself which is of course fine but as I have no use for it aside from this trial I assume it's safe to delete once I no longer need it?
