Microsoft recently released the beta of their upcoming Windows Defender offline version for windows based systems.The new version of the Windows Defender introduces new feature which allows the utility to be used without booting into the system,which eventually disallows the malwares and other malicious codes to infect the Windows operating system during the bootup process.
So next time you plan on doing a virus scan for your PC,here’s what you should do,
- First of all you need to Download the Windows Defender Offline Beta and then creating a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive.
- After than Restart the PC by using the Windows Defender Offline Beta media.
- Scan your PC for malicious and other potentially unwanted software.
- Remove any malware that is found from your PC.
P.S: Make sure that whatever media you use for Windows Defender Offline Beta is having at least 250MB of free disk space.
Microsoft is taking every possible step against the crackers starting off with this new feature and as we all know the Secure Boot Feature in the prepping for the upcoming Windows 8 operating system,though recently a security analyst created the first boot kit for Windows 8 which was shown off during the recent MalCon,after his suggestions,Microsoft will surely bring a polished security system with the final release of Windows8.
