Hi,

Last week, one of my file servers has been infected by a virus. We did some manual steps to remove it, since SEP (Symantec Enterprise Protection 11) did not stop the spreading. Now, my file server is having some issues (hanging, rebooting on it's own, ...). I want to try and do a before boot scan from a USB or CD, to clean my server and I dont want to use symantec, since it didn't see the infection at first.

Anyone has some recommandations?

Thanks!

One suggestion - You can try the AVG Rescue CD - http://www.avg.com/us-en/226386
(Although the last time I used it, it didn't find my disc controller, but that was an odd machine.)

But I would also run malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpywareRmover (tho theses are not before boot)
