    Hello,
    I have used the rescue CD for about a year now without any problems but on the most recent version I get the following error:

    “The scanner could not be found or the rescue system device is unknown.”
    I get the error when it is trying to load the vbase015.vdf file.

    I thought it might be a bad version so I waited about 24 hours and downloaded it again. It states the same error.
    There have not been any hardware/software changes on my system. Also, this is from burning the iso to CD, as I always do.

    I have googled the error and checked the Avira forum, but I have not found an answer that has helped.

    Anyone seen this or have any idea where I might start to correct this please?

    Thank you.

    Have you tried a clean reinstall first?
