I'm looking for a bootable (livecd) cd that will perform an antivirus scan on a computer without needing an internet connection. It should have its latest virus signatures included so I can simply download and burn it.
I've seen http://www.techmixer.com/free-bootable-antivirus-rescue-cds-download-list/ suggested in various questions asked here, but that post is from 2008.
- Bitdefender rescue cd
- Trinity rescue kit (TRK)
- Panda SafeCD
and they all require an internet connection.
Bitdefender crashed when trying to get the latest updates from a nonexisting internet connection.
TRK doesn't even have the AV engines installed, and it needs to download them to scan anything.
Panda wouldn't even let me scan since it detected that the internet connection was missing.
I then tried:
- Avira Rescue CD (part of UBCD too), which loads/copies its vdf files, then tells me "Scanner not found!" and halts right there.
- Dr. Web Live CD which loads and seems to scan, but won't show me any status/report afterwards so it doesn't reassure me.
- Kaspersky Rescue CD, which seems to scan fine but the latest iso had signatures from July 2010.
So, before trying to build UBCD4Win which requires an XP CD (this is for a friend, so I'd rather not do that) and some effort, what would you suggest for a linux based livecd that has its latest signatures included, will boot, scan, and show me a report of what it found? One that has a high detection rate would be preferable, ofcourse.
Thanks in advance
(Sorry for lack of links, I had them all nicely formatted but I can't post >1 yet)
