AVG is well known for their Free AVG Antivirus and bootable AVG Rescue CD, both are powerful toolsets for rescue and repair of infected machines. When it comes to cleaning an infected computer via DOS, the AVG Rescue CD (for USB stick) is one of my favorites. Unlike other security companies where the definition is usually out of date, AVG has the tendency to update their definition on a daily basis.
The AVG Rescue CD (for USB stick) is a powerful must-have toolkit for the rescue and repair of infected machines. It provides essential utilities for system administrators and other IT professionals and includes the following features:
- Comprehensive administration toolkit
- System recovery from virus and spyware infections
- Suitable for recovering MS Windows and Linux operating systems (FAT32 and NTFS file systems)
- Ability to perform a clean boot from CD or USB stick
How to Update AVG Rescue CD for USB
- If you don’t have AVG Rescue CD, Download Rescue CD (for USB stick)
