    I have recently tried the AVIRA Rescue CD (Report Only) on all of my Home PC's. I always like to have "another opinion" that my PC is "most likely" clean.

    I have heard that with Windows not running, it is very easy for a AntiMalware scanner to spot and remove a rootkit. Has anyone had any experience with removing a rootkit with an AntiMalware Bootable CD?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Copied from my document with made-up "Security Suites" which I've written myself - this is a document that I update almost everyday, depending on what I test and if I see something that I wanna change. ;


    "On-Demand
    ------------

    Hitman Pro
    Panda Anti-Rootkit
    Anti-Malware Toolkit
    (OSAM Startup Check)
    (Avira AntiVir Personal (disable the Guard through Custom Installation))"



    I'd install and run these in safe-mode with networking as far as I can. I say "as far as I can" cause I've not yet needed to use them to clean up an infected PC, even if I would like to test that sometime. :D


    Hope this helps, and don't hesitate to ask more questions! :)

    Check out "Anti-Malware Toolkit" - I ran into it by a coincidence and it includes lots and lots of tools for download plus optional def-downloads as well (probably for cases where malware prevents those built-in). ;) Things like AntiVir, MBAM, HiJackThis and SAS are available there. :)

    Not with a Boot CD, but i've eliminated countless nasties on peoples PC's by removing the hard drive and linking it up to my PC, and scanning/searching from there with tools etc. Hasn't failed yet.

    Sometimes i'll also use my portable tools on a USB stick too.

    I keep meaning to make a Boot CD !

    Antivirus Boot CD Comments:

    I have 4 PC's. The AVIRA Rescue CD boots, updates and scans on all of them.

    I have ran Kaspersky's Rescue CD on 2 of my PC's so far. It also updates OK. The scan process seems to be a bit slow, but that is not necessary a bad thing. I will try it on the other two PC's when I get a chance.

    I have tried to run BitDefender's Rescue CD on 2 of my PC's. On one PC it hangs during the boot (Hardware Issueo_O). On the other PC it boots OK. However, It looks like the C: drive is actually part of the Boot CD's Linux OS and the scanner gets stuck (loopo_O).

    I can make no comments, as to Malware Detection/Removal, as my PC's are clean. I just want to get an idea of hardware compatibility of the boot CD in case I want to help someone else with cleaning up their PC.
