    I have a G-Data Antivirus 2008 and I cannot find the option to create a bootable rescue cd. Pls let me know how to proceed.

    I do not have Gdata myself; however, I have its boot CD in German. If you want you can download its ISO here:

    http://www.raymond.cc/blog/archives...-compared-in-search-for-the-best-rescue-disk/

    Burn ISO on a CD as an image "not" as data. Even though it is in German, it is easy to understand ( I do not speak German) :D . Go to google translation and translate the words of the User Interface (UI). What I do not understand though is that Gdata still uses the KAV v6 engine; I thought they are using now Bitdefender and Avast. In the ISO there is only one engine and it is kav v6. Bizarre.

    Peace.

    There should be a link in the g data-program group to "Boot CD creation".
    I use the german version and don´t know the correct english labels.
    You can also manually execute the BootCDWizard.exe placed in the gdata "AVK" folder.

    Btw: you can upgrade for free to G DATA AntiVirus 2009
