Kaspersky Rescue Boot Disk ISO + USB (February 23, 2011) | 206.12 MB
Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is a bootable CD containing a set of tools for efficiently detecting and eliminating computer infections. It is required when a computer is so damaged that the operating system or antivirus software fails to launch correctly. The ISO image includes up-to-date antivirus databases and configuration files.
However, creating and using a bootable USB rescue disk is a much faster, easier and smarter approach than a bootable cd/dvd. Kaspersky has released an official bootable USB disk maker for Kaspersky Rescue Disk.
OS : Windows XP/Vista/7 (x86/x64)
Databases release date : February 23, 2011
The application should be used when the infection is at such level that it is impossible to disinfect the computer using anti-virus applications or malware removal utilities (such as Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool) running under the operating system. In this case, disinfection is more efficient because malware programs do not gain control when the operating system is being loaded.
In system rescue mode only object scans and database updates are available as well as update rollback and viewing of statistics.
You can take the following steps
* Specify the virus scan task settings
- change security level
- change actions to be performed on detected objects
- create list of objects to be scanned

- restrict scan duration
- specify settings for scanning compound files
- change the scan method
- restore default scan settings
* Specify update task settings
- select update source
- edit the proxy server settings
- specify regional settings
- roll back last update if necessary
* Configure additional settings
- select categories of threats to detect
- create trusted zone
- configure notification settings
- specify storage time for report files
- specify a storage setting for quarantined and backup objects
* Create report of scan and update tasks
* View application operation statistics

For the rescue CD to use effectively, you must provide that the computer boots from the Kaspersky Rescue Boot Disk. Boot priority can be modified in the BIOS. Alternatively, you can invoke the boot menu during the computer startup - usually using one of the F9 - F12 keys depending on the version of your motherboard/BIOS.
Recommendation: Burn the ISO image at low speed (8x if available)
