Trend Micro Rescue Disk Description
Part of Trend Micro’s arsenal of security solutions, Trend Micro Rescue Disk is ready to help you scan your PC and remove potentially dangerous files. This particular application is a virus removal tool for critical situations when your antivirus program is not capable of correctly identifying and removing infected files that are deeply rooted into the system.
Create a bootable CD, DVD, USB drive or hard drive section
What Trend Micro Rescue Disk actually does is help you create a bootable rescue disk hosted on a hard drive, a CD, a DVD or a removable USB drive. With its help you can then perform a thorough analysis of your system prior to booting Windows, so that potentially infected files are not loaded into the memory.
The rescue disk is created in Windows via a wizard-like and user-friendly interface, then you must restart your computer and boot from ‘Trend Micro Clean Boot’ to access Trend Micro Rescue Disk.
Scan the system to remove persistent threats
Trend Micro Rescue Disk is designed to scan your computer in its deepest corners in order to detect potentially dangerous files and have them removed without affecting the operating system. It can perform quick or full scans, enabling you to monitor its progress and displaying a complete report right after, showing you its findings and helping you eliminate threats.
A good thing about Trend Micro Rescue Disk is that it can revert the system to a state prior to the last threat removal. This is a precautionary measure, in case the file deletion prevented Windows from booting or functioning properly.
Aside from system scanning, Trend Micro Rescue Disk can also perform cleanups of the master boot record, while also fixing errors that might result in boot problems.
Use a bootable rescue disk to delete infected files
Trend Micro Rescue Disk is a worth-trying solution for cleaning infected files that cannot be removed with a standard antivirus application in Windows. Furthermore, it promises to solve MBR problems, thus allowing your computer to boot normally again.
It takes a bit of effort to create the bootable disk, but all operations are pretty straightforward, so usage shouldn’t pose problems.
