AVG Rescue CD
A powerful toolset for rescue & repair of infected machines.

The AVG Rescue CD 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
* Free support and service for paid license holders of any AVG product
* FAQ and Free Forum self-help support for AVG Free users

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.

There are two files to choose from.
One is an ISO file which you need to burn as an ISO to a cd.
The other is a RAR file which needs to be unpacked using WinRar.
I can download both in under 1 minute each but I can't unpack the RAR file without getting a corrupt file initrd.lzm. :?

Anyone got this to work yet?


Archive extracts fine for me. Try using another program like 7-Zip or something and see if that works.

I've been using Avira system rescue CD for a while (have PC repair shop) which does the same thing
It does not clean your PC up fully, but if you can't get into windows due to a virus this can get you into windows so you can run a proper virus and malware check.

Avira for windows on the other hand, I can't stand though. The interface is just dreadful.

Gonna go test this out on the next problematic PC.

Not to quibble too much, but are we in the freebies section now giving heat and rep for just reporting free security programs? I've seen Microsoft Security Essential thread rocket into heat, i have seen panda A/V, now this. How many more normal free products are going to be given heat.

The second question then becomes, if I make a list of all the freebie Security Rescue CDs, plus a list of all the Free AVs will I then get heat and rep? Seems silly to me....


eg Vipre Rescue System:

or Sardu (A multiple AV detection system):

http://www.sarducd.it/tutorial.html


How about the most awesome cleanup tool of them all, HitmanPro:

http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro

(Almost 6 engines powering it, PLUS its got Force Breech - hold down Ctrl before you double click on the HitmanPro Icon, and it kills any malware processes running at the current time) - includes Gdata, Nod,PrevX, Asquared.


Just seems a bit silly to vote each one hot....I guess I can see how if you don't have any A/V at the moment you may vote it hot. However, each and everyone, without knowing detection rates seems bizarre to me. Just a personal opinion.

Sighs.. I think i'm a hypocrite! I can't stand it when people complain about the voting system, and i've just gone and done it :oops:

Why shouldn't people give heat and rep for this and similar posts?

If a product is free and its serves its purpose why can't it be hot?

Not everyone is aware of what is out there. You obvioulsy know what you are talking about when it comes to A/V and the like. Not everyone does. You are no doubt all too aware of the dodgy free downloads that are offered when you type in 'free antivirus' into your search engine. This is safe - it may not be the best available but it's free, readily available and as far as I know, safe to use. And its better than nothing, which is what many people have once their free Norton has run out.

Why don't you list the others you've mentioned in a new post - do the rest of us a favour and share your knowledge of free A/V and anything else that is useful and costs nothing. It would be most welcome I'm sure. I'd give you heat and rep if you did.

Why shouldn't someone get rep added if they've taken the time listing a product or service in order to share something with other people? Surely doing something for no financial gain, or any sort of gain at all for that matter, deserves some form of a thank you?

I tried it recently when a PC went down. Only helped to make things worse. Ubuntu live saved the day in the end.

AVG let a lovely bit of Malware onto my brother in laws pc. Took a bit of work on my part to get rid of it, also got rid of AVG and replaced it with NOD32.
