Barts PE Question: How can I use Norton Antivirus with it?

Do I need to somehow create a plugin for it? Or is there a way I can get the DOS utils on there with the latest definitions?

I'm getting fed up with machines and trying to update the clients antivirus software. NOBODY EVER has their subscription up to date. Ever.

Anyway, I don't have a copy of McAfee so if there is a way I can make Norton work with Barts PE that'd be wonderful. Prefferably with the GUI, but command line would be OK as well.

Is there any info out there on makeing plugins for BartsPE?

lol burrcm.  A Kaspersky or NOD plugin for a Bart disk would be nice.

You dont' need to have McAfee to download the commandline scanner from McAfee's site and Bart's PE has a builtin GUI for the commandline scanner, so you can get it for free and still be able to scan using the McAfee engine.

More info:

Download the latest superdat (sdatxxxx.exe) file from the Network Associates ftp site( ftp://ftp.nai.com/CommonUpdater/ ).
Copy the file sdatxxxx.exe into the files folder located in the mcafee plugin directory (plugin\mcafee\files).
Now you must unpack it using the "/e" parameter. From the mcafee folder, run sdatxxxx.exe /e (where xxxx is the version number, for example sdat4290.exe). When unpacking you don't see anything happen for about 20 seconds, just wait for it.

Ah, I didn't know the SuperDAT files that McAfee releases had executable files in it. That's awesome, thank you Eagle6990.

Even so though, is there a plugin out there for Norton? It's sometimes useful to have more than one scanner available.

I just looked and I can't find a plugin for Norton.  I would rather trust McAfee anyway but that is just a personal preference.  Bart should at least get you to some form of a bootable state where you could run Norton or some other form of Anti-Virus.
