  1. Hello all,

    When system is such infected that we can't run the scan operation of installed AV or even go into the OS, we need to scan the machine beyond the OS, by, say a bootable AV.

    OK, if you were in such a situation, what bootable AV would you use? Or if you have some tool like that what is that (for scanning PC from the boot)?

    What best one for nowadays?

    I don't know if superantispyware still has the one you put on a usb & plug it in to run it, but that is what I've done in the not so distant past to get online, is that what you mean? Good luck.

    If it is a virus, which is what AV (AntiVirus) stands for, U may have to format and reinstall the Windows to fix a problem that bad.
