Windows 7: How To Update Windows Defender Offline's Virus Definitions Manually

I just reread your post and you use YUMI. Not sure if my previous content would be very helpful.

Sardu is bundled with Babylon Toolbar

SARDU - good as it is, is currently bundled with an installer for Babylon Toolbar. I was lucky enough to install SARDU before the developer added this monetizer.

Babylon toolbar : General

I can say that it's pretty tricky to opt out of the Babylon Toolbar installation no matter what the developer says.

Just a heads up to any members who decide to try installing SARDU.

Strangely scanning the same with MBAM reveals nothing. Reports it as clean. It will only detect after it's actually been installed.

You can update the definitions of WDO and burn a new cd rather effeciently. I have it on my laptop when I am onsite and I can create an updated CD or bootable flash drive quickly and then not worry about network connectivity for the downed pc. Check it out if you are not currently using it.
Hi Babel Fish,

Thanks for the info re. Sardu - looks like another good one.


I didn't see your post on page 2 or Callender's until after I posted this reply.

I did notice that PendriveLinux warned about the Adware in Sardu ( SARDU ? Multiboot USB Creator (Windows) | USB Pen Drive Linux ) and, as I have about 15 .ISO's on my YUMI drive, I won't be trying Sardu as it appears to do the same job as Yumi.

But thanks for the link as I hadn't seen that there are so many different multi-boot USB creators.
