  • scegliere il livello di sicurezza più idoneo per la propria postazioni di lavoro. Si faccia attenzione che se si seleziona il livello Basso tutte le macro presenti nei fogli elettronico verranno eseguite senza alcun avviso, ciò potrebbe comportare anche l’esecuzione di macro potenzialmente indesiderate;
  •  premere il pulsante OK per confermare l’impostazione adottata;
  • premere il pulsante OK per confermare le modifiche apportate alla sezione Sicurezza.

A questo punto il nuovo livello di sicurezza delle Macro di Calc sarà operativo.

How to use Symantec Endpoint Recovery Tool CdRom

In their article Anti-Stealth Fighters: RootKit Testing forDetection and Removal (VirusBulletin, April 2008), the authors Andreas Marx and Maik Morgenstern have written:

A step in the right direction could be to focus on providing
bootable rescue media, too: this might be the product
installation CD or a CD or disk that a user can create and
update himself. When the system is started from
this media, the rootkit cannot be activated on the system,
so a scanner would be able to see all fi les and registry
entries which would usually be hidden. This way, the
scanner could detect and delete all rootkit and malware
components as long as the signature database is up to date
and comprehensive.

The Symantec Endpoint Recovery Tool CdRom arises in the direction indicated by Andreas Marx and Maik Morgenstern in their article.
