Working with ESET SysRescue

For the rescue CD/DVD/USB to function effectively, you must boot your computer from the ESET SysRescue boot media. Boot priority can be modified in the BIOS. Alternatively, you can bring up the boot menu during the computer startup - usually using one of the F9 - F12 keys, depending on the version of your motherboard/BIOS.


After booting, ESS/EAV will start. Since ESET SysRescue is used only in specific situations, some protection modules and program features present in regular ESS/EAV are not needed; the modules are minimized to Computer scan, Update, and some sections in Setup. Ability to update the virus signature database is the most important feature of ESET SysRescue. We recommend that you update the program prior starting a Computer scan.
