There’s lots of ways to clean an infected PC, like booting into an Ubuntu Live CD and scanning for viruses, but this is an extremely simple—and free—solution from a trusted anti-virus vendor.
Once done, switch back over to the Objects Scan tab, select the drives you want to scan, and then click the Start Objects Scan button.
The scan will run, and clean up any viruses that it finds.
Within a few short seconds you should see the full working environment, with the Kaspersky Rescue Disk screen front and center.
The first thing you want to do is switch tabs over to the My Update Center, and then click the Start update button to load the latest anti-virus definitions from their web site—this is a critical step!
You’ll be able to access your Windows partition through the /discs/C: folder, and do any other maintenance work you need to do.
Of course, there are many good free antivirus packages around, but if somebody was to ask us which commercial antivirus or internet security package we would recommend to people, without a doubt, one of those at the top of the list would be Kaspersky.
