    Considering how bad their AV is I wouldn't trust this. If anyone else wants to give it a go it could turn out to be very useful at repairing malware damage.

    Thanks for the info, but Anvi is sketchy at best.

    I will stick with the Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 and the Dr.Web LiveCD for now. Both of these Antivirus Rescue CD's have an option to unlock Windows when the Ransomeware has Windows locked.

    This could potentially do as much harm as good.
    I ran it upon a clean VM and got the results pictured.The main concern is that there doesn't seem to be any way to verify the "problems" found before "repairing" them.The only option is to repair the lot.

    In theory this could be a valuable tool,but it needs a lot more work yet IMO.

    Hi

    I have ask the Team from Anvisoft some Questions from it

    1. Have it a Quarantäne Function

    2. Have it a Scan Log or Other Log Files for it

    3. How can i send you the False Positives from the Programm

    And here are the Answers from Anvisoft

    I am sorry that Anvi Rescue Disk do not contain Quarantäne Function, it will also not save scan log or any other log files.
    When you find a false positive, please take a photo of the detected threats and send to us.

    Anvi Rescue Disk

    Do you have any specific reasons for Not Trusting it?

    Can you, please, offer some Evidence?
