Best Antivirus Rescue Disks

Many of the best antivirus providers provide a free bootable recovery disk that can be used to clean your computer after an infected. These are essentially Linux-based tools designed to disinfect an infected computer that won’t start up or cannot be scan with a standard antivirus software program running in Windows. I would recommend the Kaspersky disc for its ease of use (though it might not work on some Dell systems).

You can also find similar features using the Avira or ESET rescue disks. They have an interactive interface, but require an external USB or CD drive to start. Both of these options will identify and scan for malware on your PC, although their virus definitions don’t get updated as frequently as the Linux-based rescue disks.

The Trend Micro Rescue Disk is a great alternative. It’s also one of the smallest disks on this list, with just 70MB. It doesn’t come with an interface with graphical graphics, however it’s fast and comes with several options for customization. These include the ability to mount specific files, drive volumes or even individual folders.

Finally, you can get an effective virus scan using the Comodo rescue disk although it’s not as flexible as the flexibility of the Linux-based options mentioned above. It’s a highly effective tool to detect and eliminate the kind of virus that may be hidden in Windows files, and thereby preventing detection by the standard antivirus software. You can choose between the option of a text-only or full graphical interface, and also the option to run a custom or smart scan.
