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 Unlike other security companies where the definition is usually out of date, AVG has the tendency to update their definition on a daily basis.

        I don’t think so, I believe you’ll have to re-download the entire software.

      Just install the files onto your USB drive, if it doesn’t boot up when you restart your computer, it could be that you’ve set the boot up sequence in BIOS wrongly.
