If malware has undoubtedly succeeded to penetrate into a PC, rescue antiviruses are extremely intriguing security remedies to check for it or to protect it from continuous destructive advancements.

The majority of security programmes are installed on computers, and because of their pro-active features, they anticipate the spread of malware, find it, and, when necessary, get rid of it. These forms of long-term installs, however, are unable to identify all of the malware loaded at system launch or remove security risks that stop the machine from ever starting up.

Norton Bootable Recovery Tool. Once you’ve downloaded the Symantec tool, you may follow the instructions to make a boot CD that doesn’t contain any other programmes. You will see a straightforward, non-customizable graphical interface with the two major options of scan and clean after it has booted.

Avira Rescue System . offers downloading of a picture for use in making media. Easily usable graphic user interface with limited functionality. Its strength comes in the search and disinfection engine and the capability to update the virus database, something that all of the others with simple interfaces can also perform.

Bitdefender Rescue CD . It is one of my personal favourites. Or perhaps I loved them since they were abandoned a few years ago in favour of a Bitdefender Rescue Mode. It makes use of a Linux system based on Xubuntu, which opens up more options in addition to malware elimination. You can burn in between after downloading the ISO from the URL. Whenever it is still accessible, we provide you with a web.archive link.

RescueCD for AVG. It provides two distinct pictures for CD or USB manufacture. It has a text-based interface that is fairly sparse, but don’t be alarmed; it serves its purpose and, like the rest, regularly updates the virus database to the most recent versions.

SafeDisk Panda. Because there aren’t many customization options in the most recent version (4.4.3.0), it has a new UI and is very simple to use. When the start button is selected, a wizard that automatically looks for the latest antivirus definitions launches and begins scanning the whole system for harmful files.

System Rescue . ESET provides the option to download an image to burn, as well as the direct creation of it on a CD or USB. Very user-friendly UI that has been perfectly updated.

Rescue Disk from Kaspersky. Although Kaspersky hasn’t changed the user interface in a while, the Gentoo version 18-based recovery disc still retains the power of the industry’s top provider of consumer protection products. You may use the ISO image after burning it to bootable media.
