Bootable virus scanners supporting ntfs

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/09

I was looking for a bootable virus scanner supporting NTFS. Kaspersky was the first one I found, and it worked well.

Back then, these were the output locations:

The HTTP link can be convenient for locations that do not support TLS (cough, VMware ESXi wget, cough), which are OK if you calculate the sha256 hash from the TLS link first.

Likely there is a 2020 version by now.

I got the links via:

I might try BitDefender later.

“net view” “System error 1231 has occurred.” “Windows 10”

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/09

On my research list: none of my Windows 10 PC’s in WORKGROUP can see that other machines exist, but they can connect to each other.

C:\>net view
System error 1231 has occurred.c

C:\>net view
System error 6118 has occurred.

On Windows 8.1 and 7 (I know: both beyond end-of-support) can see both Windows 8.1/7 machines and Windows 10 machines:

C:\>net view
Server Name          Remark
The command completed successfully.

It is unclear on which Windows 10 release this started failing. I think it is around 1803 (April 2018 Update) or 1709 (Fall Creators Update). It fails despite all settings indicating sharing and discovery are enabled:

Things tried that failed:

Start service WebClient

Tried from an administrative command prompt, then waited a minute:

C:\net start WebClient
The WebClient service is starting.
The WebClient service was started successfully.

Ensure system names are uppercase

The system names were already in uppercase.

Note: do not re-enable SMBv1 as it is inherently insecure!
