Say my antivirus catches a virus/worm, or this could be spybot catching spyware for that matter, that won't go away, such as the type that loads when windows starts. When starting in safe mode still won't remove the malicious file in question, will scanning the drive by putting it in another computer fix the problem? I've been doing this, and it seems to work, but I wanted to be sure. How do you access the registry when it's not on the master drive, and how would adaware/spybot, or antivirus software catch it if it weren't? I hope this question is clear. As I read it, I wonder. But I don't quite know how else to ask.
