Is it necessary to create the Rescue Disk?


The rescue CD is used when it is impossible to start up the computer normally due to a virus infection. In these cases, you should start up or restart the computer with the rescue disk in the corresponding drive (CD-ROM or DVD drive). The disk will allow you to start the computer and will carry out a full scan during startup.

Even though it is not necessary to create the rescue CD, it is highly advisable.


The rescue CD can be created from the option available through the Windows Start button:

  1. Click the Windows Start button.

  2. Select All programs.

  3. Click the Panda Antivirus Pro 2010 group.

  4. Select the Rescue disks option.

It is also possible to create a rescue disk or CD from the Services menu in Panda Antivirus Pro 2010.


Note: Scans will always be run with the most recent malware signature file available, either on the computer or the rescue CD.
