Re: malware infesting windows part of dual-boot
If you obtain a Trinity Rescue Disk (free download online) you can boot
from that and run four different anti-virus softwares with one command. If
I remember correctly, you can designate which partition to use them on.
First, run updatetrk, then:
virusscan -n -a clam;virusscan -n -a fprot;virusscan -n -a bde;virusscan
-n -a va;virusscan -n -a avs
You will need the key for Avast that you can get free online as well (good
for 30 days).
This will take awhile (hours). Each anti-virus software will write a
report to the root directory of the partition you choose.
