my server has not been running exe's lately. The server runs extremely slow, more so than it has ever done in the past.
I recently ran kaspersky's online antivirus scanner. it found a few objects in exchange folders, since the sever in question maintains the exchange database.
Recently my IIS settings as well as other exchange/windows files has gotten corrupted.
Even though the infected objects the online scan found are in the exchange database folders, is it likely I have malware embedded, running in memory?
I can't figure out how to solve my prblm! without being able to run an exe, for SP update.. nor able to install an antivirus prgm to remove the malware..
I'm in for a long wkend, which is when I can boot the server in safe mode to trblshoot. So Here is my question. Given the behavior and limitations of not being able to install prgms... Is there an updated malware program sold out there that can run off cd to clean out this drive?
I can't be spending so much time troubleshooting this beast, I think i have to reinstall exchange because exchange and AD are acting weird. The email addresses tab is gone, IIS is blank, and OWA is gone... Can malware be the cause of all of these symptoms?
I have hardware based raid... by intel.. if it were raid degradation, upon rebooting, I'd get a message and beeps right?
