    clamav


    ok, i ran clamav from the systemrescuecd i had.
    i mounted the partition (which was windows).
    after 301 mins, it finally gave me a result of 19 infected files.
    did clamav remove the 19 infected files. I have a sneaking suspicion that it didnt as the hdd is ntfs.

    but after a quick search, mount said that it was mounted r/w!
    as a final test i decided to make a directory, which it failed to do.

    can i safely say that the 19 infected files were not removed?
    if so then how can i remove them?

    thanks

    Why not try running the av once more and seeing what it comes up with? You could also remove the files by hand, from windows.

    Probably. I have never used it myself, if it's a console app, just add "> files.txt" to the end of the command, which will write the output of it to ~/files.txt
