Avira AntiVir Rescue System – Final Thoughts
In my tests, the Avira AntiVir Rescue System worked.
For a person that wants additional options to help recover in the case of PC down time caused by a virus or malware, the Avira Antivir Rescue System CD is a good candidate for testing to see if it has a place in your diagnostics and recovery toolkit.
I found the process of creating a Rescue System USB to be more involved then neccesary. Given that other antivirus vendors have provided simpler, integrated processes to complete this task, I would not recommend Aviras method for creating an Avira Antivir Rescue System USB. For fans of Avira, however, the process is well documented by Avira, and links are provided in the links portion of this article.
It’s important that a Windows based PC have a good anti-virus program installed and running real-time protection. Going without current anti-virus protection, and then having to rely on a rescue disk to put you back in working order is just not a good idea.
Don’t wait until you have an emergency to try out the Avira AntiVir Rescue System. Go thru the process of creating the disk and check it out on your hardware before you need it. If it doesn’t work for you, there are other good anti-virus rescue disks available to try at the links below.
