PostPosted: Tue 27 Jul 2010, 08:31    Post subject:  AVG Rescue CD  

I found this on the AVG site:

http://www.avg.com/us-en/avg-rescue-cd

The AVG Rescue CD is essentially a portable version of AVG Anti-Virus supplied through Linux distribution. It can be used in the form of a bootable CD or bootable USB flash drive to recover your computer when the system cannot be loaded normally, such as after an extensive or deep-rooted virus infection. In short, the AVG Rescue CD enables you to fully remove infections from an otherwise inoperable PC and render the system bootable again.

Apart from the usual AVG functions (malware detection and removal, updates from internet or external device, etc.), the AVG Rescue CD also contains the following set of administration tools:

Midnight Commander - a two-panel file manager
Windows Registry Editor– simple registry editor for more experienced users
TestDisk - powerful hard drive recovery tool
Ping - to test the availability of network resources (servers, domains, IP addresses)
Common Linux programs and services– vi text editor, OpenSSH daemon, ntfsprogs etc.
Free of charge
The AVG Rescue CD is a free-to-use product that anyone can download. This also covers any new program versions and virus database updates. If you have any other paid AVG license, you are also entitled to receive our full technical support.

Thanks, just what I was looking for. I'll give it a shot on my jacked-up WinBloze XP box.

I was thinking I remember a couple of other small Linux distros that perform a similar function...but don't remember the name.

Would there happen to be a Puppy package that runs antivirus ware?

Ciao.

Don't many of the anti-virus companies have their own sort of 'rescue CD,' though?

I know Avira has one - I've tried it, and yes, it does use a form of Linux. Smile

...I don't think it has all the tools (like the Windows registry editor) that the AVG disc has, though.

Flash had posted a link to a review of several rescue cd's here:

I've tried a couple of them.........seemed usable.
