can download a software package from its website, which can then
either be burnt to CD or stored on a USB flash drive.

If needed the disk or USB drive can then be inserted into the machine

Once booted, the software will scan the hard drive for viruses and
malware, as well as restoring a safe network connection to the

AVG is also offering a version of the Rescue CD for Linux-based PCs.
