AVG ships free emergency boot-up CD
Posted on 25-Mar-2010 13:17 | Tags Filed under: News



AVG Technologies has released the AVG Rescue CD, a free product used to recover computers that are not able to boot or are infected in a way that will not allow normal operation. AVG is now making the AVG Rescue CD available to all customers (including AVG Free customers). It can be downloaded to any CD or USB stick and then inserted into the damaged computer and used as the recovery disk.

This offering contains essential tools for users, including a comprehensive administration toolset, system recovery from virus and spyware attacks, being suitable for recovering Windows-based operating systems.

Upon booting a damaged computer using the AVG Rescue CD, the software will automatically mount all hard drives of the computer and scan them for viruses and malware. The AVG Rescue CD will also automatically restore a safe network connection to the computer.

For advanced users, the AVG Rescue CD also includes a Windows Registry editor, a TestDisk utility for recovering deleted files and lost partitions, a file browser for navigating folders, and a Ping tool for basic network diagnostics.

The AVG Rescue CD is a Linux-based boot utility with essential AVG security software already integrated. The AVG Rescue CD can be downloaded free at http://www.avg.com.au/products/avg-rescue-cd/ and burned onto any CD or DVD, or extracted directly onto a USB flash drive.

The AVG Rescue CD has been a must-have toolkit of essential utilities for system administrators and other IT professionals for many years, said Lloyd Borrett, Marketing Manager for AVG (AU/NZ). Its fantastic that its now freely available for anyone to download and use. All AVG paid customers using the AVG Rescue CD can phone our local technical support team for full support.
