F-Secure Rescue CD


If your computer no longer starts due to malware corrupting the operating system, or you suspect the security program has been compromised, you can use the F-Secure Rescue CD to securely boot up the computer and check the programs installed. The Rescue CD can also be used for more advanced repair and data recovery operations.The Rescue CD contains Knoppix (a derivative of Linux), an operating system that runs totally from the CD and allows access to your computer's Windows operating system and hard disks.Note: the Rescue CD cannot scan encrypted disks.You can also download the Rescue CD updates to a USB drive (minimum 256 MB of free space) using a healthy computer with Internet access. You can use this USB drive to fix a computer that cannot connect to the Internet. Instructions on how to do this are included in the Rescue CD User's Guide.When to Use the Rescue CDThere are two main situations when you should use the Rescue CD:* The computer no longer starts, as the operating system has been corrupted by malware. In this case you can use the Rescue CD to scan the computer and quarantine the malware. This may allow the operating system to start properly again.* If you suspect that your security program has been compromised by malware. You can use the Rescue CD to check this, as it is independent of the operating systemIf the computer cannot be recovered, you can also use Rescue CD and a USB drive to save important data. Note that if you copy data from the computer to the USB drive, this data may contain malware. The Rescue CD cannot scan encrypted disks. This includes for example, Windows Vista BitLocker disk encryption.Using the Rescue CD on a working operating system may rename essential system files and so cause your operating system to no longer start. If this happens you can use your operating system repair disk to reinstall the operating system. Note that this may reinstall a fresh operating system and so remove any personal settings and files you have.To use the F-Secure Rescue CD, the computer must meet the following minimum requirements:* x86 compatible* at least 512 MB of RAM* startup from a CD* connected to the Internet or be able to use a USB driveHow to create F-Secure Rescue CD1.
