When malware thwarts your ability to run the normal antivirus software bootable rescue disks could aid. These tools allow you to scan your computer without having to run Windows and can often detect files that antivirus software might ignore. Certain tools can scan for the Master Boot Record of the hard drive. This is a function that is particularly beneficial to eliminate the most persistent or difficult to remove threats.

These bootable programs have a text-based interface. However, many provide customization options, which means you can choose to only scan specific kinds of files or folders, or even sizes of files. The best of these tools have a graphical interface and support for more advanced threats like rootkits and certain types of ransomware.

AVG Rescue CD, with its simple but thorough GUI, and many scanning options, is an excellent example. It’s also one of the few that can provide an all-inclusive MBR scan which is normally impossible to perform from a non-bootable program. However it’s not the most efficient on this list and its text-only her response interface isn’t for all users.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk is a great alternative It’s fast and well-designed interface. It also supports more advanced viruses. It’s got features you won’t find in other bootable anti-virus tools, such as the ability to scan boot sector and hidden startup objects as well fileless and the entire drive. You can also set exclusions to reduce the time it takes to check for malware. In our tests, it identified all the malware samples we sent to it as well as some that were able to evade detection by other antivirus programs.
