Good Boot discs with Antivirus software

Recommended Posts

Good morning all,

 

i need a bit of help as a linux user i never seem to get a problem with viruses.

 

however my parents on the other hand seem to have been riddled with worms and God knows what else I'm looking for a boot cd utility with an up-to-date anti-virus software that can scan a hard drive and remove the viruses n malware n the likes.

 

ive tried ubcd but it cant find a software package but not joys

Since nobody has responded I will put in my amateur 2 cents. Can the system boot up and run malwarebytes? Spybot search and destroy was always my go to as well but I've honestly not had a big virus problem in a long time. booting into safemode during virus removal helps. I setup my parents with avast on the auto scan and update schedules so I get way less calls from them now. I also taught them to scan files before installing things but I doubt they actually do that.

If the system is really messed up I tend to do full format but I'm no pro.


What operating system are they running?
