Tip

Automatically create an Update Virus Defintions CD for Norton Ghost v12.0 and...


Got Symantec GHOST12 (bootable CD) + NAV2008 (non-Bootable) with a valid serial number and want a method to scan your PC for Virus with the latest Virus Defintions but you don't have NAV2008 installed because your ISP gived you a free Virus Suite then read on.

I have created this semi-automatic method to create a virus CD that will work with the Scan for Virus option on the Ghost Boot CD simply replace the Ghost CD with the one this creates and select browse usually for D: drive you will see your CD-ROM access light action as the Ghost loaded on Ram disk updates itself.

Download link for the Norton Ghost definitions Updater is HERE you need to join my group on facebook @windowstipsclub.com to request the password to unzip as this was originally posted there first, though you FixYa's might like it too plus there are other great tips and tricks. The download link for my Norton AV2008 definitions install CD is HERE on my rapidshare due to a 50MB upload limit on my Sky Drive.

You may also need to enable Windows Scripting Hosts do this using THIS from my Sky Drive to enable the VBS script to run at the start of both autoupdaters.

CreateUpdateVirusCD.bat - Will download the latest i32 definitions file and then action the full unzip ISO and burn in one go if you already have the ISO created then you can run the file below. first it will allow you to run a vbs script to clean then temp files Ihave found this to be required on some systems before the downloadsucks in the latest i32 definition file from the FTP server it willthen unzip it and create a Update Locator Virus Definition folder on your desktop similar to the UPDTLCTR.EXE function that is bundled with the Ghost CD (this only works if you have NAV2008 pre-installed and can't create the folder otherwise)

makecd4defs32.bat - will create an ISO from the Desktop Folder and burn the CD for you using mkisofs.exe and parts of the CYGWIN dll's this will burn the ISO to your CD/DVD burner it is set to default scsibus1 (dev=1,0,0) if your burner is on a different channel then you can run scanbus note the number and edit the listmem32.awk by altering the numbers shown in bold and saving the changes, if your drive is on scscibus2 then change to 2,0,0 and so on...

print "cdrecord speed=0 -dev=1,0,0 -dao -v Virusdef.iso" >> "dumpit.bat"

a15e609.jpg

In the case of this scanbus the CDRW is located on scsibus1 but connected at 1,1,0 so change the line to read.

print "cdrecord speed=0 -dev=1,1,0 -dao -v Virusdef.iso" >> "dumpit.bat"

Norton Ghost v12.0 ( includes defintions no later than 2007)
Norton Ghost v14.0 ( includes defintions no later than 2008)

At time of posting the latest intelligent updater defintions file is 20091202-006-i32.exe which includes definitions not later than 2/12/2009 this can now be used in conjunction with your Bootable Ghost CD to give your PC an up-to-date scan using the latest protection

Last note you will have to create the desktop file if you have not tried to run the original update file from the Ghost CD otherwise the script will fail feel free to add these line to the script if you wish that is if you can get the mkdir command to create the Update Locator Virus Defintions folder.

Norton failed to detect worm.win32.netsky. My computer is infected with the virus and I need help. Patti


Hello Patti,

First, you need to update the Norton with the latest virus definitions and perform a scan again. It may detect the virus and remove it.

If it does not, we need to format the hard drive of the computer and reinstall the operating system as it is the most effective way to get rid of the virus.

Wish you good luck

Pat
