Bootable CD with Virus scanner?

Bootable CD with Virus scanner?

Postby Sisco22 » Tue Jul 07, 2009 7:08 pm

Hey guys,
Is there a antivirus scanner out there that offers a free bootable cd? One of the machines here at work has a nasty virus on it and Avast has a Bart's PE CD, but it cost and i only need it for this one time. Any suggestions>

Slax is a bootable linux live cd that has ClamAV available that you could use to scan for the virus and get rid of it if found.

When a friend gives me their computer and they think it is infected, I put it on one of my PCs with a virus scanner as a spare drive and scan the whole drive that way. It is similar to using a boot disc with a virus scanner, but more easily available.
