Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is a useful tool designed to scan and clean a severely infected computer without booting into Windows. It comes really handy when anti-virus applications or malware removal utilities fails to disinfect the x86 and x64 computers.
To use it, you need to download the ISO file, burn the ISO image to a CD, insert it into the infected system’s CD-ROM drive, enter the PCs BIOS, set it to boot from CD and reboot the computer. On loading, update the rescue disk databases, select the hard drives/partitions that you want to scan and click ‘Start scan’.
You can also Run Kaspersky Rescue Disk from a USB Flash Drive, by using Rescue2usb to create a bootable Kaspersky USB Rescue Disk.

Disc, not disk… 🙂
This is how Kaspersky spells it. 😉
I have installed Kaspersky on a Flash Drive but the problem is that you have to download the same updates over and over again when you are working on a different computer and sometimes you may not have a fast connection available. Is their a way to incorporate the latest signatures to the USB drive so that it won’t take so long to update signatures?
