Despite implementing the latest anti-spyware or anti-virus tool, you’re only as good as your latest definition update. Should a virus go live and you’re one of the first to receive the bad file, this may result in system chaos – unable to boot in to your machine, access files and more.
The solution is to build yourself a rescue disc that you can use to boot in to your computer, if you experience issues in the future. Of course, you don’t need to have this rescue CD on disc just ‘in case’, you could borrow someone else’s computer, download the latest version and burn this to disc.
Avira AntiVir Rescue CD is such as tool. It’s a self-contained Linux-based operating system with components required to scan, salvage and recover your system and/or individual files. If you can’t boot in to your computer, this is ideal.
Note that the Rescue CD is updated frequently by Avira, so it always contains the latest definition updates.
