I am attempting to assist a good friend with an outdated laptop that is not in the most effective form. I am unsure if it is contaminated or if it is innocent PUPs and adware. I do not need to join it to the web in the home, I do not know find out how to fully isolate my good friend’s laptop. However is it protected to attach it to the web by way of my cellphone with LTE to replace ESET SysRescue Stay? I am booting from a CD and for something to someway bounce from the HDD and to the cellphone appears unattainable to me, however I am no knowledgeable.
That is what I’ve finished up to now:
I’ve up to date Home windows Defender to the most recent definitions and carried out a full scan (took all night time), nothing detected.
Put in Malwarebytes (offline), do not know the way updated the installer is? Discovered numerous PUPs and different issues, however nothing dangerous.
Kaspersky Virus Removing Software did not discover something.
I am planning to format and reinstall, however have to repeat out some recordsdata first and simply need to make certain that there is not something coming alongside to the recent set up.
There’s additionally a second person on the PC that is not accessible, what’s doubtlessly hiding there I do not know.
