Avira AntiVir Rescue System – Part 3 of 4 (Creating a Bootable USB Flash Drive)


Avira AntiVir Rescue System
Avira AntiVir Rescue System is a free downloadable software program designed to scan and disinfect Windows based Personal Computers (PCs) that have been severely infected by a virus or viruses. 

Avira AntiVir Rescue System is downloaded from the Avira website as an ISO image file.  Once downloaded it can be burned to a CD or written to a removable USB device, such as a flash drive.  The resulting CD or flash drive is bootable and provides an isolated environment from which to run virus scans and attempt to disinfect the PC.

Avira AntiVir Rescue System can be used when a virus infection is so severe that it is not possible to disinfect the computer using the installed anti-virus application or anti-malware programs, or if the installed anti-virus program has been disabled or broken by the virus itself. 

You can find more information about theAvira AntiVir Rescue System including how to create Avira AntiVir Rescue System CD in the links section below.

Creating the Avira AntiVir Rescue System USB Flash Drive
Creating the Avira AntiVir Rescue System USB Flash Drive is a bit more complicated then some of the other Rescue CDs I have taken for a test drive.

I won’t recommend this method for creating a bootable Rescue System.  Other antivirus manufacturers have created simpler methods that make the Avira method to involved for me to bother with.

However, Avira has done a good job of documenting the process at the Avira Support Forum.  So instead of going into the process here, I have provided a link to the Avira Support Forums how-to.
