    Long story here as I dont want to go in depth but I have a feeling my friends PC might have a Virus/Trojan. I cant boot up the PC due t the fact I get a BSOD so its pointless, so my only option now is to do a scan using a CD-ROM and that means to boot the AV software off the CD-ROM and do the scan from there. Is it possible to di this with NOD32 and if not can you pls give me some other suggestions.

    Thank you

    Only suggestion i can think of is to remove your friends hard drive and plug it into another PC running NOD32 as a slave (secondary) drive and scan it that way. At least then any threats won't be running and will be easy to clean off.

    Also you have an oppertunity to backup any data from the infected drive.

    You can run NOD from a USB pen drive.

    Create a bootable CD and place NOD32 inside

    >>> NOD32's v2 on-demand scanner nod32.exe + signatures (nod32.000 - nod32.007)
    or
    >>> EAV's v3 command line scanner ecls.exe + signatures (em_00x_32.dat files) , where x is from 0 to 5


    I create simple bootable CD (no extras) with Nero . Or you can use Bart PE and place the files inside.
    You can run nod32.exe with no commands , then configure it and start scan . ECLS.exe can be run with /auto parameter

    One more thing : If your friend's computer gets a BSOD , why don't you create a back-up and reinstall Windows . Don't you think this is the better option :thumb:
