Scott, I'm trying to scan a Win7 machine pre-boot. I've got the AVG iso burned (and running on a suspected infected machine) but I'd like to try Spy Bot's bootable CD antivirus too. Do you know if there is a free SpyBot iso available?
Thanks,
Randy

you can get the fixmestick and you can get it at http://www.hsn.com

does the same thing it will remove viruses and malware and there is nothing to install on the computer and it will have a lifetime updates for 3 computers if you get it from http://www.hsn.com it does work along with a antivirus software like vipre. what it has on it three anti-virus software load on there and all three will scan the hard drive for viruses and malware etc. The fixmestick will find any viruses and malware that the anti-virus software miss or sleeping in the background and removes it from the computer.

go and check it out.

I would recommend free applications that work on an unlimited number of computers instead. Scott.

with the fixmestick you can if you get the fixmestick pro for unlimited computers but that would cost more and i think it is better then the freeware.
