ESET SysRescue (ESR) USB Version (codedate 20100215) | 214 MB
Scan and clean any Windows system booting from USB memory key -
Dead optical drive - Get an old, slow, small capacity USB key lying in some drawer - Think it-s useless - Burn this image and use this good old USB to boot a computer and both scan/clean the system - minimum required capacity - 256 MB.
ESET SysRescue (ESR) USB Version is a bootable USB device that uses ESET engine version 4.0.474.0. The main advantage of ESET SysRescue is the fact that it runs independent of the host operating system, while it has a direct access to the disk and the entire filesystem. Thanks to this it is possible to remove those infiltrations that normally could not be deleted, e.g. when the operating system is running, etc.
Scanning speed is pretty fast compared to other rescue disks. The scan is very thorough as it tries to scan files inside compressed archive and also in setup installers. With the latest virus signature database (4869, 2010-02-15 16:59), it manages to catch all of known viruses by February 15, 2010.
For the rescue USB to use effectively, you must provide that the computer boots from the ESET SysRescue boot media. Boot priority can be modified in the BIOS. Alternatively, you can invoke the boot menu during the computer startup - usually using one of the F9 - F12 keys depending on the version of your motherboard/BIOS.
The content of the USB will be written to the operating memory (RAM). After booting up, ESS will start. Since ESET SysRescue is used only in specific situations, some protection modules and program features present in regular ESS are not needed; their list is narrowed down to Computer scan, Update, and some sections in Setup. Capability of updating virus signature database is the most important feature of ESET SysRescue.
Suppose that computers in the network have been infected by a virus modifying executable (EXE) files. ESS is capable of cleaning all infected files except for explorer.exe, which can-t be cleaned, not even in the Safe mode. That is due to the fact that explorer.exe, as one of the essential Windows processes, is launched in the Safe mode as well. ESS cannot perform any action with the file and therefore it remains infected.
In such a scenario, you can employ ESET SysRescue to solve the problem. ESET SysRescue does not require any component of the host operating system. Therefore it is capable of processing (cleaning, deleting) any file on the disk.
Here-s how to burn the image to the USB key:
