    In "Rescue Disc" I'm mean to anti-virus bootable disc, like the kaspersky one or so.
    Now, I ran into a post about "the best rescue boot disc" and know already about UBCD for Windows, but I think this project is only for WinXP (it need the installation disc of WinXP).
    Is there's something like it for Win7?

    What's wrong with Kaspersky's KRD ? It's based on Linux, but you don't need to know Linux in order to use it. Once you d/l the base KRD ISO, you only need their KLUpdater (a Windows-based util) to periodically d/l the detection updates for the KRD. Copy the updated defs to a flash drive, so when you use your KRD, you update it from the flash drive.

    I own Kaspersky PURE, so I can make a fresh ISO every so often. What I like about KRD is that it serious WiFi/Ethernet support, so if nec one can d/l detection updates directly. In fact, Kaspersky has added their own registry tool ! Even though it's Linux-based, they've done a good job to make it Windows-centric....

    Bumping an old thread.

    I was trying out different USB rescue discs/scanners.
    I had good and bad results on Win7 x64 with 1 SSD and 1 regular hard drive.

    Kaspersky: program starts, updates, but it cannot find any of the hard drives
    Bitdefender: program will not start
    Trend Micro: program will not start
    AVG: updates within the program and works
    Windows Defender Offline: works but has to be updated within Windows.
    Comodo: updates within the program and works. It even alerted me to a modified Hosts file, the other didn't. ( I modified it, but it still alerted me)

    Just wondering if others use rescue discs and what works best for you.

    Thanks.

    I also like Eset rescue disk

    But Kaspersky is very fast & exceptionally easy to use. :D
