There are times, when Malware and viruses corrupt the system to an extent when it is no longer able to even get booted from the hard disk. What to talk about the installed versions of the anti malware and antivirus software, you cannot even start the system.
The best way to use such a system is to format the disk and start all the software installation afresh. But this solution is feasible only if you have complete back up of the user data and all the installable version of the software ready to install in the new system.
But many times this is not the case. And you have to attempt to recover the system and data from whatever is remained. In such situation, you have to use a Bootable Anti Malware Disk
