Kaspersky Rescue Disk


Kaspersky Rescue Disk is a free utility for removing virus from computers which does not allow the operating system to start, It was designed to be used when regular antivirus software fails in its job to detect and remove unwanted program from a system. Boot from Kaspersky Rescue Disk to scan and remove threats from infected computers without the risk of infecting files or other computers.

Burn this ISO image file to a CD/DVD using your disc burner software, or place on a bootable USB stick and run from there. How it works: set your system BIOS to boot from the CD / DVD/ USB device, insert the disc or the USB stick and restart the computer.

After the fast loading process, you will face with the Kaspersky Rescue Disc interface, which has several menu such as hidden startup objects, disk boot sectors, or local hard drives. You just select the objects desire to process. The Rescue Disk then provides a report of all dangerous objects found on your system, such as viruses and Trojans, but also adware and other similar software. Infected files can be quarantined, disinfected, or deleted.

The Settings menu allows you to configure the current level of security, file type, scan optimization, archive scan, installation package and more. This is very useful if you already know what you want to scan so you don’t have to waste time checking the entire drive for dangerous files.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk is a great way to eliminate threats that cannot be cleaned with a standard antivirus solution. This requires a fair amount of effort, but it works when other security solutions fail.

The only thing we can find that we don’t like about this app is that it might take some time to download because the ISO image is rather large.
