Avira Rescue System is an application that allows you to access computers that cannot be booted anymore. This makes it possible to repair a damaged system, rescue data or to scan the system for virus infections.
Avira Rescue System is the version of Avira AntiVir that can be used on systems that don't start anymore. Download the .EXE file, double click and burn to CD to use to boot from the next time you turn on your PC.
The Avira Rescue System interface is simpler than that of Avira AntiVir, but it's just as efficient. It runs on a Linux environment and there are some basic settings for you to determine the type of scan to be performed.
Avira Rescue System is constantly updated to include the latest security features. Since the update is not automatic, always check to make sure you have the latest version - you can sign up for update alerts just below this review, in fact.
No matter how bad it looks, Avira Rescue System gives you one more chance against the virus.
