    AV to scan windows?

    Just a quick question, is there an AV i can use to scan my windows partition to find any bugs/backdoors or viruses?

    I know there is a backdoor somewhere, and comodo isnt picking it up so i am refusing to boot from my windows 7 right now. My password information keeps getting changed and websites and emails are alerting me that someone has access to them and is trying to promote spam.


    Halp, thanks.

    Try to use Clamtk and ClamAV:

    Other interesting tool is AVG Rescue CD:

    +1 for clamav. Clamtk is an optional front-end for it. If you're used to command-line applications, you don't need to bother installing it.

    You could scan all the NTFS partitions: /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1.

    Are you running Wubi or Ubuntu Live USB?
