    Is there any free Rescue Boot CD that everyone recommends?

    Something that has all quality programs to detect rootkits, virus, malware etc?

    Cheers.

    I'm interested to read the responses also.

    I built a UBCD4WIN disk but I have never had to use it. UBCD4WIN was the best when I did this but there may be something better out there now.

    I like UBCD for Win for basic tools.
    For removing malware however, I have tried them all and nothing...nothing..comes even remotely close to using a "bench rig" to do your scanning with. Meaning, I remove the clients hard drive from their computer, I slave it into our bench rig..and I scan that drive using tools on our bench rig. Bench rigs just runs WinXP Pro, stripped down and locked down, and has many many tools installed. Does a great "shotgun approach".
