As I understand it, no spyware can save itself onto the CD as it cannot be written over, so therefore each time you boot from the CD, you should be 100% spyware free. However, I was wondering, the other day I reformatted my computer and I re-connected the internet before I re-installed all my anti-spyware programs and firewall etc. and I noticed that from just 10 minutes of surfing that I had 60 infections when I ran a test and had to re-format again. So, will spyware just download itself onto my computer as soon as I go online with the CD slax OS?
Although none of the spyware can save itself, and each time I restart I will be completely free of it, will it still be able to get me for the session that I perform in between turning on and off my computer? ie. will it be able to quickly infect me and spy on me without actually saving itself permanently onto my computer?
I hope you understand what I mean, as I plan to boot from my CD copy of SLAX for logging into private accounts etc. Am I correct in assuming that I will be completely safe and spyware free (100%).?
Ant help will be much appreciated.
