Booting an infected PC externally with a bootable virus cleaner CD is always a wise option when you are thinking of a heavily infected PC. Today’s intelligent malware often take control of the system as soon as they get entry into your system and try every trick in the book to make their detection difficult.
In this process they often paralyze the defense of your computer system and make the installed security software ineffective. It is often impossible for the installed security software to correctly detect them and remove them.
And in cases when the PC is so heavily infected that you cannot even boot it, then there is no other choice than to use a bootable Antivirus Disk.
Panda SafeCD – A Bootable Virus Scan Disk for both FAT and NTFS Drives
Panda Securities, the well known brand in the field of security software, have released a bootable virus scan Disk, which you can download absolutely free from their website.
This useful utility comes in handy when you need to clean a friend’s PC (or your own) from a malware infested state. It is specially useful for detecting and disinfecting malware infections which give regular AV products running within Windows a hard time.
These are the special features of Panda SafeCD.
- Automatic detection and removal of all types of malware.
- Boot from CD or USB stick.
- Supports using updated signature files.
- Supports 13 languages.
- Supports both FAT and NTFS drives.
Panda SafeCD is in the form of an ISO image file, which you have to download and burn into a CD with the help of a CD burning software.
The virus signature files included in the SafeCD are updated often, but there is no regular pattern of these updates. You cannot be sure that they are the latest one.
However, if you have a Panda Antivirus installed on your then the virus signature files get constantly updated. In such a case, Panda SafeCD uses the virus signature files contained in pav.sig files.
