Unable to Scan XP computer that won't boot with Norton Antivirus
Posted on 2004-04-04
I need to scan a WinXP home computer that doesn't boot at all with Norton Antivirus. If I put the NAV2003 or NIS2004 disk it only scans the A drive (CDROM). I tried to goto the dos prompt and look at the HD however it doesn't recognize it when booting from the NAV disk. Now I made an awsome Barts PE boot disk and I can see the HD fine, copy files to my network share etc.
Symantec states that you can run NAVDX c: /l /doallfiles /prompt /cfg:c:\vdefs where vdefs has the latest definitions.
This is the string I want to run. So I tried to copy NAVDX.EXE from the CDROM to the bad HD and run from there w/ Barts PE DOS Prompt however I receive the error "NAVDX.EXE is not a valid Win32 Application".
I have a network share to my server however I don't really have internet access so I can't do scan from the website.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
