Avira Rescue CD to clean Virus and Malware

Avira Rescue CD to clean Virus and Malware

Avira Rescue CD is a free bootable antivirus rescue disk to clean virus without booting Windows operating system first. As I have written a lot of free bootable rescue CD review before. Now i will write about Avira Rescue CD review.

For me, Avira rescue CD is definitely one of bootable antivirus software out there can remove virus under clean and safe operating system environment. It helps to detect malware before it gets active or before it is difficult to remove once the operating system is active. Stealth viruses no longer remain hidden: The Avira Rescue System blocks the disguised harmful programs providing a clean operating system.

Avira Rescue CD is similar like other bootable Rescue CD, which developed under Linux Live CD distribution. It can load a simple operating system without writing any system files on your hard drive. Meanwhile, Avira AntiVir Rescue System is updated several times a day (contains the current virus definitions VDF) so that the most recent security updates are always available.

How to create bootable Avira Rescue CD:

1. Avira Rescue CD ISO Download

2. Burn the Avira Rescue CD ISO image to a CD media using CD/DVD burning software.

3. Once finish burn Avira Antivir Rescue Disk into bootable CD media, insert Bootable Avira Antivir Rescue Disk CD into CD ROM and boot the computer by loading CD ROM media first.

4. Then a DOS screen will be loading below. Choose option 2 to start booting DOS Avira Rescue system.

5. Once loading into Avira Rescue System, you will see main menu option. Then you choose the virus scan option and hit ” Enter “. You get to select whether to scan all files, only program files or only boot sectors. If Avira Rescue System is unable to repair infected files, you have the option to rename the files.

The only disadvantages of Antivir Rescue CD is can’t updating their virus definition during booting up. Unlike BitDefender Rescue Disk which able to update virus definition while booting the rescue disk.

Overall Avira rescue CD still remain a good rescue disk for certain reason.

  • Darocs

    Its not in English and seems to be too big for my screen to view it.

  • jlh

    I just checked this out and it now has an updater and a graphical interface (as opposed to the screenshot in the article). Though it lacks some features, for example you can just set its behavior (report only/desinfect/delete) globally before starting the scan and not on a file to file basis or even after the scan.

    I ran the Avira AntiVir Rescue disk. It found 3 trojans; however now windows will not load at all. Shows loading then a blue screen flashes for a second and I can’t see what it says, then it goes back to start windows normally, ect…Is there anything I can do now?

    The downloadable ISO file referred to above has an exe extension. Therefore it is a normal CD/DVD data burn not an ISO image burn.

  • tom

    Same as darocks, it’s in German, and I can’t see to the bottom of the page, don’t know how to run a scan. I got it to update, restart, trun off, but that’s it. Presume it said scan hasn’t been run, but can”t see the bottom of the screen. Tried many resolutions, no difference in appearance. No joy.

    I feel that if your infection has got to this point, a clean OS install is probably the best idea. I think people overlook that method even though it is 100% effective. Sometimes you just have to wipe the HDD to the metal, install some clean antivirus and try to be a bit more careful the next time around.

  • Markusbdc

    Hmm- downloaded almost all of them and burned them all to bootable disc. Just about every one wanted some license key that i didnt have and couldnt figger out how to get. AVG bootable disc worked, scan worked too and machine seemed to start acting normally until i hooked into the internet where the virus seemed to have reloaded itself and now its back to square one. Oh well I was looking for an excuse to get a new Dell tower…….sigh….
