Is there any software I can use to scan a bootcamp partition on OSX for viruses from OS X?
I prefer to run the scan from OS X because:
Typically Windows anti-virus solutions are more like full suites that require an installation. I do not wish to install anything like that because it would incur a performance penalty.
As I understand it, running the scan from outside the OS you're scanning means that anything potentially malicious on the OS won't interfere with the scan.
I suppose I could use a bootdisk of some kind but that is difficult because some bootdisks are not compatible with macbooks.
So I figure if OSX is already hosting/aware of the Windows partition I should be able to easily scan it from OSX right?
