Virus file IO analysis: Windows Performance Toolkit: Virus Analysis

Learn how you start your analysis by looking at the file IO activity. This is a great jumping off point when analyzing a virus since many file operations occur during infection. This virus will be cloning itself to other files—as a result, there will be both disk and file IO activity. Then inspect these file copies and file modifications that take place during virus infection. This is the starting line for virus analysis.
