Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper - Bootable Offline Anti-Virus Scanner

Although similar to the Microsoft Safety Scanner which Synack posted about yesterday I thought this deserved its own thread. 

This tool (currently in beta) enables you to create a bootable Windows PE-based anti-virus disc or USB flash drive which can scan a computer outside of Windows using the same virus definitions as Microsoft Security Essentials and ForeFront Endpoint Protection.

Some people may recognize System Sweeper from Microsoft's Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (a.k.a. DaRT) which is part of the Desktop Optimization Pack. This new version of System Sweeper looks like it will be included with MDOP 2012 once that is released later this year too.

Entfernen vom BKA-Trojaner - Autostarteinträge unter Windows Vista/7 mit Hilfe von “msconfig” entfernen

Hilfreicher Artikel von botfrei.de!! Danke Jungs Viele Schadprogramme nisten sich imAutostartvon Windows ein und werden bei jedem Neustart mitgeladen. So zum Beispiel auch einige Versionen des BKA-Trojaners, die mit dieser Möglichkeit dieVorschaltseite beim Windows-Starteinblenden und somit die Eingaben des Anwenders blockieren. Wir zeigen Ihnen hier, wie Sie mit Hilfe des Programms “Microsoft Systemkonfiguration” die lästigen Einträge aus dem Autostart entfernen können und den Start dieser Programme verhindern: 1.) Starten Sie den Rechner neu und booten Sie mit Hilfe der F8-Taste in den “abgesicherten Modus mit Eingabeaufforderung“. Die “erweiterten Startoptionen” von Windows 7 2.) Geben Sie folgendes in die Kommandozeile ein: msconfig 3.) Es öffnet sich die Systemkonfiguration von Microsoft. Klicken Sie auf den Reiter “Systemstart“. Hier sehen Sie nun die Programme, die beim Systemstart geladen werden.Überprüfen Sie die Einträge! Sie erkennen solche Schadprogramme oftmals schon an der N…

Your home lab costs too much electricity?

ust found out my electricity bill is going up by 19% and its already stupidly high as it is. So I decided to save my own pocket to go green in what way I can. So #1 of course I’ve got my home vSphere cluster properly configured to keep off one of my servers switched off most of the time using DPM. However I want to save more energy so I had an idea about my desktop PC. Like most IT geeks I leave my home desktop PC switched on 24/7  for convenience, to have access whatever the reason I like to have it on.  I started to  think is there a way I can control my desktop PC like DPM and came up with this idea: I would schedule a task to place my PC into sleep mode at 2am and then schedule a Wake Up Lan task to power it on in its previous state at 7am thus saving me 5 hours of electricity. So this is how I did it: Step1 I used the windows scheduler to schedule this command at 2am: Click to make larger This places my PC in a sleep state.  Step 2. I run the DD-WRT firmware on my home router (D…

Creating (a better) vSphere 5 ESXi embedded USB Stick

In a previous post I blogged about creating a vanilla vSphere 5 ESXi USB drive using the VMware .iso file from VMware. This post shows how to create one using the HP version of vSphere ESXi (5.0_Oct_2011_ESXi_HD-USB-SDImgeInstlr_Z7550-00253.iso). Note: (You can use any vendor customized vSphere ESXi .iso file: VMwareDell and IBM). The HP version comes pre-installed with all the HP CIM providers which work very well with HP servers, including the HP MicroServer. Using the HP version gives you the more details in the Hardware Status tab. I’m going to be using a different method, recommended by Will Rodbard (thanks Will), who is a colleague of mine at VMware, you can see his comments from the previous post. In summary the steps are: Find and download the following tools: HPUSBFW & UNETBOOTIN Run the HPUSBFW tool, click on the USB drive, select ‘Fat32′ and click FormatRun UNETBOOTIN, select Diskimage and browse to the ESXi 5 ISO fileSelect the USB drive you have just formatted and cli…
