    Oops... US $39 it means Rs. 1872 INR

    PANDA SafeCD, AVG Rescue, Kaspersky Removal, Avira CD, Dr Web LiveCD are totally free...

    Weird business model...
    I really don't see much of a future for this particular product given the free alternatives but I guess some money has to go to Redmond, considering; "The CD contains a completely independent Microsoft® Windows 7® based system".

    USD 39 to buy a CD & some paper? Too expensive


    why don't release a ISO image for people to download and burn it.


    I would like to know who will buy it. haha~~:D

    Very high price indeed considering that UBCD4Win has contained a Spybot plugin for a long time :p

    It is high price but sure they have to pay MS for each CD.

    IMO other vendors will follow this move, a bootable window based CD, rather than a linux basded one.

    May be they can offer a linux based CDD very cheap and a windows based one with price.

    The rescue CD/USB you can create with Eset is also windows based, but you can only create it through the product, so no free download, and you need username + password to update it, but I suppose a trial license would also work.

    I have the latest version of Nod32 and I don't see anywhere from within the product to create a rescue CD...Can you point me to that? Thanks.

    Thanks..Found it..I have Windows 7 and it says it only supports Vista and XP. Anyone know if it would work on Win 7 as it is basically the same as Vista(the kernel).

    What really surprises me about this is that I have seen no evidence that Spybot can rid a system of the latest fake AVs and rootkits. If it can't do that??
