    "An innovative tool from Kaspersky to detect and remove virus when Windows no longer starts."

    A Kaspersky Labs, popularly known only as Kaspersky, is a company conceived in the branch of computer security solutions. It is well characterized by developing effective applications in the protection of personal information against virtual pests, offering programs and combat pests from simple to the most complex threats. Among its products are worth highlighting the Kaspersky AntiVirus (KAV) and Kaspersky Internet Security (KIS).

    Not just the success of its products, now it is providing an additional tool for the detection and removal of pests: the Kaspersky Rescue Disk. The main difference of the new product in relation to their older brothers is in execution mode. This is a virus that runs directly from a CD or DVD, with the need to load the operating system of the machine to work. Thus, it can be used on any computer, regardless of operating system installed.


    The Kaspersky Rescue Disk comes in a disk image, which should be recorded on a CD or DVD media for your recorder software - Nero, CDBurnerXP, Alcohol 120% etc. - preferred. WARNING: You must use the option to save the image to disk and not to burn a data disk. Once recorded, simply insert a CD / DVD drive in the appropriate reading and restart the machine. Remember to have your PC configured to boot to the CD / DVD. See the manual for the motherboard of your computer for information on how to adjust this item.


    During the boot process, a screen - as the above - will appear. Press Enter to start the Kaspersky Rescue Disk.


    The tool has an interface very similar to products already known to Kaspersky. In the next screen, select the disk drives that will be analyzed and click Start Scan at the bottom right of the screen. Now just wait until the rest is up to the program.

    Windows operating system XP/Vista/98/2000/2003
