3 Free Bootable CD & USB Antivirus To Remove Crimeware That Traditional Virus Scanning Can’t

↓ Sponsored Links / Updated: April 25, 2015 / Home » Computer & Internet Security » How To & Security Tutorials

Here is a simple (simple for professional) tutorial on how to remove virus, Trojan, and worm without installing an antivirus software onto Microsoft Windows. These simple software are known as bootable antivirus because they are useful when your system is not boot-able. A must have tool if you suspected there is a deeply embedded virus in your root system that is stealing your personal information such as credit card numbers.

How to Use these Tools

First, you’ll need another computer to download the free software, once you are done, install it onto a USB thumbdrive. Make sure your desktop or laptop is set to first boot via USB and not the hard disk. Restart your computer and let the software perform the magic. Alternatively, you can boot via F8 into safe mode to run the portable antivirus.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is designed to scan, disinfect and restore infected operating systems. It should be used when it is impossible to boot the operating system. Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is designed to scan and disinfect x86 and x64-compatible computers that have been infected. The application should be used when the infection is so severe that it is impossible to disinfect the computer using anti-virus applications or malware removal utilities (such as Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool) running under the operating system.

In this case, disinfection is more efficient because malware programs do not gain control when the operating system is being loaded. In the emergency repair mode, you can only start objects scan tasks, update databases roll back updates and view statistics. Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 allows performing the following actions:

Configure objects scan settings:

  • change security level
  • change actions to be performed on detected objects
  • create a scan scope
  • change types of objects to be scanned
  • limit scan time
  • configure scan of compound files
  • change a scan method

Bootable vs Portable Antivirus

Having said that, if your system is bootable but badly infected, you will love these 7 free portable antivirus. Unlike bootable antivirus, these portable antivirus does not create a bootable USB flash drive, it is meant for system that is infected yet bootable. Some people do use it for second opinions.

    My virus file contains Autorun.inf in which there is a mysterious file named zhengbo. which is surely a virus folder. Its already empty, but while trying to del it, the sys says cannot read from source file….
    cmd unresponsive, can’t find the zhengbo file. This is why, the renamed autorun didn’t get deleted . What can be done??

      Hi Samuel, you cant… well, you can actually if you’re an expert in computer. But for the average user like us, you’ll need an antivirus. Try the free standalone antivirus McAfee Stinger. Search for it via Google.
