Hello,

Following a SW installation, I have a big issue with my laptop, rejecting any Antivirus, disabling all network connections...

So, I decided to use UBCD5012 to troubleshoot.
I launched PartedMagic and then XFPROT on /dev partition. The issue is that 2 hours later the system is still scanning...

Is that normal ?
Do you recommend an other way to troubleshoot ?

Thanks in advance,
Bpat

Don't scan the /dev/ directory, it contains the raw devices (hard disks, keyboard, mice, ...) that are available, not the partitions with filesystems.
It also contains /dev/zero (will give all zero's to programs that want to read from it), so Xfprot will keep reading from this device because it always will get data.

Open the partitions that you want to scan with the file manager and look at the path that you see and scan that directory. You can also scan the /media dir, which should contain all mounted partitions.

Thanks for your swift answer.
Sorry, I realized that after checking the 120MB log file (Xfprot was scanning /dev/.udev...). :?
Thus, I launched it again on /media/SYSTEM. Wait an see.
Thanks again.
