  • i did not do scanning in safe mode. Because it is our dc.Any other option?

  • There is no other way out as the safe mode is the best option to scan the system becasue  viruses are usually attached to the dll's and system services and antivirus scanner cannot delete those files as those files are already attached to the process Hence they are detactched only in the safe mode.
