pyr Posted February 21, 2010 Share Posted February 21, 2010 Hi, I checked several usb switchblades, and I have few questions regarding the difference between dealing on the usb key or on a hard drive. I began creating a batch file that call few executables (firefox/ie passwd stealer) located on my usb key. I noticed that it was a bit slow. Than I tested the "7zBlade" package, it consists of unzipping executable to %temp% folder then calling them. I noticed that it was a bit faster. So my questions are : 1) Is it really faster to unzip + execute executables on hard disk VS an usb key ? 2) The "7zBlade" package creator says that he choose to zip his executables because a password protected archive is not checked by antivirus. But during the uncompressing process, the AV can check and block them... So, is it very necessary to loose time in unziping ? 3) I also create a C program that silently call executables : I tried to fast the process. But I do not really see a big difference with a batch file. 4) For Antivirus, what do you think of binding (join) each executable in one. Gain of time ? 5) Up to you, which is the fatest way to execute 3-4 executables ? Execute them on the usb ? on the hard disk ? Batch VS c/c++ : do you think it can be faster because of compiler/interpreter ? Thank you :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
