can we use SysRescue for any infected pc or only for the one with whom SysRescue was made ?
I would guess that you can use sysrescue for any infected pc's .You just have to insert your username and password into sysRescue so you can download the newest database signatures.
someone can confirm ??
The documentation is clear to me (emphasis mine):
"ESET SysRescue (ESR) is a utility which enables you to create a
bootable disk containing ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 (EAV). The main
advantage of ESET Recovery CD is that EAV runs independent of the
host operating system, while it has direct access to the disk and the
entire file system. This makes it possible to remove those infiltrations
that normally could not be deleted, e.g., when the operating system is
this text is not clear to me.
I know someone who cant updated when booting with SysRescue in antother pc. That is why I want to know if SysRescue work only for the pc it was made with.... Could have something in the SysRescye disk that recognize the pc.
Maybe the network adapter is unrecognized.
I have used the sysrescue created on my desktop pc successfully on my laptop as well as my desktop. you can add network drivers if you need to for other computers.
a rescue cd that cant update virus database that is no good I hope there is another reason update didnt succeed
It depends on the AIK used. If you use the Win7 AIK you will have more network drivers.
A Sysrescue disc will work on all computers
If the network adaptor is not recognized, you can add the driver when you build the syrescue CD/ISO
you can always create a new sysrescue with the lastest database on another computer then it wouldnt be such an issue. its not hard to open up device manager and see what ethernet card is used and then add the driver before you build the rescue disc. eset is simply using a tool microsoft provides as a platform to host their product on a bootable disc. so you cant blame eset for not poviding drivers for every ethernet card known to man. i have found eset the best rescue disc. i have found windows 7 to have very good driver support so far so use the windows 7 aik if possible.
I'm the guys that Piranha referred on his previously post...and maybe we are near to brighten up the problem.
Before, here’s a short summary of the story...
I created a SysRescue CD from my computer (WindowXP SP3, Eset Smart security 4 latest versions 126.96.36.199)
I only found the Window AIK version 6001 for Window Vista , I was uncertain but I read that this AIK was compatible with Window XP SP2-SP3...so I install it with no problem and I created the SysRescue CD and test it on my computer successfully...
But from my Friend's computer, I was unable to update the database...I was thinking that it’s the internet problem but I tried with Kaspersky Rescue Disk ver 10 and I was able to update the data base.
But to be honest, before to update, I found how setting up the network connection from Kaspersky Rescue 10 (Start/Network septup/Configure Network adapter/Choose the network adapter...clic yes...)
So maybe Eset SysRescue CD doesn’t found or identify the network adapter from my friend computer and so it was unable to update the database...
So, is there a way that we can configure it ? if yes, how ? I didn’t found how to configure it (I will be honest again...me and my friend was take...some strong beers this night...!!!LOL!!!)
Thanks guys and have a nice week!
It is easy to blame the beers..... We cant know which network adaptor is used by buddy infected pc so it is difficult to build a SysRecue disk for something we dont know. If Kaspsersky one can update, Eset SysRescue should do it too.
