Windows 7 RC 32 bit installed with the default settings. Question: Does Windows 7 deny access to system files? Example: A system file located here: "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\". The reason I ask is that I ran into and have quarantined a "suspect" malware file. I could not upload it to Virustotal and I could not make an archive of the file. I was denied file access in both cases. I booted up with a Puppy Linux Live CD and both uploaded the file to Virustotal (21/41 Positives) and made a ZIP archive. After that I rebooted to Windows and quarantined the "suspect" file with F-Prot. Thanks in Advance.
