    Question [SOLVED] Combining anti-virus + data recovery + image recovery?


    Hello

    I tried the Linux-based live CD's of the main Windows anti-virus vendors (Kaspersky, BitDefender, AVG, Avira).
    They work well, but they are single-purpose solutions while affected Windows users also need a solution to 1) pull data (or what's left of it) out of their contaminated Windows host onto a USB thumb drive or a remote host, and 2) restore a clean image using eg. CloneZilla.

    Asking users to burn and run three different CD's is not very user-friendly.

    Has someone already investigated combining those three features into a single live CD?

    Thank you.

    I think Hiren's Boot CD probably has suffering Windows users pretty well covered:

    Hiren's BootCD 11.0

    The Ultimate Boot CD is another option they can choose if they want it:

    Thanks Ozar. I knew about UBCD, but thanks for the tip on Hiren's BootCD.

    The UBCD contains a recent release of AVIRA AntiVir (3.6.9-20100512182845).

    I don't know how good the AV-related widgets included in Hiren's BootCD are.
