Ok, after the more than 100th crash of Win Pro 7, I did a complete reinstall from scratch/kill. (The more than 30th in last 1 year.) Avast found another Trojan in the memory dump of the crash and Win pro was already well along on its usual self destructive behavior, that starts with its erasing its logs and downloading Trojans/viruses from the net with contact only. (I try to only load necessary updates from MS only and this load has only signed drivers now, unlike the LAST THAT HAD UNSIGNED DRIVERS AND NOT WHERE WIN PRO 7 SAID THEY WERE. This is also what WP7 does before it self destructs. It looses tract of its own drivers. It says they are in directories that they are not or they are in directories that WP7 can not find.) I was also wondering if it was normal to have hidden partitions on the drives that WP7 can not find? It can find only the root and the system hidden, but it can not find the others and I was wondering if this was normal?
I stopped using Zonealarm after it failed 9 of 9 tests and tried Avast FW, but it failed 5 of the 9 tests, so I went to Com. It passed 9 for 9 of the tests, but I can not recommend it, for other reasons.
Can Avast be configured to stop the Trojans during the active load and not just find them in the backups and memory dumps? Can Avast be configured to stop the placement of the Trojans before the erasures of logs and the moving of drivers that become unsigned to directories WP7 can not find and creation of hidden partitions that WP7 can not see? Thanks.
