Does anyone have any Spyware\Adware removal programs that could be added and rune from UBCD?

Thanks

Robert

Ps. Has the creators of the UBCD looked into this functionality before?

(end of quote)

In order to a scanner to be effective, they need read/modify
access to two tricky components: NTFS (usually) and registry
enumeration. Support for BOTH of these is limited or non-
existent in DOS and linux apps. To this end, it's not a
surprise a SW scanner hasn't been written (limited market,
hard to implement, useful only in a CD boot environment).
Your best bet for this is UBCDWin, which you can combine
with UBCD if you like. Even then, there may be issues
relating to scanning all registry keys. Check out their
forums where such issues have been discussed extensively.
