Windows 10: Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk
Well when I went to the site jimmy posted his link too, I did not get any of those screens, only the screen of the wolf pic, and had no problem downloading it. I also run Norton 360, and Malwarebytes Pro and got no warnings while downloading the Wolf pic.
Also checked after my download, with my Hitman Pro....again it found nothing on my puter. Don't know why you guys had problems???
If one clicks the malware definition in my post above(MW:HTA:7) this is the definition:
Malware entry: MW:HTA:7
Description: This attack uses the .htaccess file to redirect users to a site serving malware (or spam
). In some cases, the index.php is also modified to do the redirection as well. Loads malware from:
Well that's what I am trying to say, as I WAS NOT redirected to any other site......like it seems you 2 were.
Another source, I tried with Chrome this time(Edge is my main browser):
One odd thing though...
Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit isn't jumping into action... Hmmmmm??
Only other thing I can think of that might have protected me more than you guys is that on my IE11 I also run a program called
Ghostery that blocks a lot of *hit and pup's. Free program. So don't know if it protected me from that redirect or not. I just know I was not redirected to any other site.
Oh well, not important, it's gotten too off topic.
Unless we use Jimmy's PE tool to safely download(when not redirected), then scan with MBAM and then finally move the file to PCs picture library.
Some Very Good Points about Using PE - Everything loaded to RAM -
It is an un-damage-able Mini OS..-
Resets itself every reboot - perfect for TESTING..
None of the changes made to PE OS are permanent..
Portable mini OS,, Take anywhere and there is no telemetry..
Yes those are all very good points, just wish I could figure out how to ADD some personal apps to your WinPE program. This is easy for a few folks, and difficult for others. Not everyone is a programmer. But I do love your program Kyhi !!
What personal Apps - Mike
Does anyone know how this software can be configured to boot from usb on uefi/gpt.
I formatted usb using rufus on the relevant mode then dragged over the contents of another usb where it does work on bios/mbr set up.
But when booting...
Have a new Double Power 8.1 Tablet that I've upgraded to Win 10. Now I've got it set up just right, I'm attempting to create a Rescue Disk. Purchased a 16gb micro-usb drive which is successfully recognized. Ran 'Create Rescue Disk' from Windows...
I have a new laptop with win 7 pro installed. Once Win 10 is installed in July how will I be able to create a system restore disk?
Just sharing this.
I made another boo-boo today and deleted 500GB worth of media files (just movies and music). Don't ask me how because that's something nobody wants to do. :)
I don't keep a backup of these files. For me these are disposable...
