Protecting Windows OS Against Local Threats Without Using Antivirus
With the increasing development of technical service, the security problem still appears as an obstacle between user and these services, especially when the windows operating system users haven't enough expertise. As a result, the user will be more susceptible to many problems. Therefore, this paper aims to detect local attacks in such environments and attempt to avoid and protect computer from such attack through the proposed simple tool. The proposed tool based on series of private MS-DOS instruction runs many processes in synchronous manner with operating system and did not relies on any form of antivirus. Furthermore, the tool has the ability to detect malware, manipulate Abstract them and restore the infected parts of operating system to the default state. The proposed tool has been implemented with the auto run features of the Windows and the result show that the proposed tool have the ability to detect 80% of the known malware on infected computers.
