ESET SysRescue Live, no prompt with cleaning options.


Recommended Posts

I ran ESET SysRescue Live, everything went well, found two objects, nothing serious, browser related, Babylon and some extension. I didn't have it on strictly, but in the middle, I didn't receive a prompt with cleaning options. In other words I couldn't delete the files in question, any ideas why I didn't get a prompt?

If you didn't enable "Scan without cleaning", it could be that the partition was hibernated and you chose to mount it in read-only mode. Couldn't it be the case?

I tried to scan again and set it up to ask me before cleaning any files, but still no prompt. I guess I just have to delete the files manually.

Per Eset KB article on SysRescue:

Quote

ESET SysRescue Live may not be able to clean detected threats in Windows Vista 64-bit, and Windows 8/8.1/10. Due to the file-system architecture of these operating systems, especially when the operating system is hibernated, ESET SysRescue Live cannot clean threats detected during scanning.

I interpret the above to mean regardless of hibernated partition status, there may be files inaccessible to SysRescue and cannot be cleaned.

It's weird. If an action cannot be performed automatically you are asked for the action at the end of the scan:

I ran it from a CD and did the update, everything else seems to be working. I scanned several times, different settings, never got the prompt. I deleted the files manually, nothing serious detected.

I believe the issue with SysRescue involves what was detected:

Babylon as a rule requires it to be removed directly from the browser: https://www.myantispyware.com/2018/04/04/how-to-remove-search-babylon-com-chrome-firefox-ie-edge/ . I am surprised that SysRescue even detected it.
