6. eScan Rescue Disk

Some malware are very destructive in nature or badly programmed that they affect the stability of Windows leading to recurring crash of programs and Windows. It then becomes a nightmare to correct the Windows Operating System if you’re unable to boot in to Windows even in Safe Mode. This makes it very hard for the technical person to troubleshoot and fix the problem and they normally end up reformatting the hard drive to reinstall Windows. This can lead to loss of data and productivity.

There are also other malware that get embedded very deeply in the Windows operating system in such a way that whenever you boot Windows, the malware is also loaded at the startup and may escape detection by the antivirus software running in the system.

In such cases you will need to start Windows from a clean source to scan and remove the malware and fix Windows errors. eScan Rescue Disk provides you with a Windows based clean environment that not only helps you to scan and clean the system but also to fix the Windows registry changes done by viruses.

Boot Device Support

  • Ability to boot from CD/DVD or USB

Getting Started

  1. Click Download to begin.
  2. If prompted, click Save or Save As, and save the file on your computer’s desktop.
  3. While the installer downloads, prepare one of the following:
    •    Blank CD or DVD (do not use a rewritable disc)
    •    Empty USB Drive (128MB or larger)
      NOTE: The drive will be reformatted before creating Rescue Disk, and anything already on the USB drive will be lost. Please back up any important files before using a USB drive for Trend Micro Rescue Disk.
  4. When you have finished downloading the file, double-click the Trend Micro Rescue Disk icon to start the installer.

To launch your computer from a CD or DVD, you must set the BIOS to boot from a different device. While the exact procedure differs from computer to computer, the overall process is usually like this:

  1. Insert the disc or USB drive into the computer.
  2. Restart the computer.
  3. When the computer powers up again, look for a BIOS setup message, which often looks like “Press [KEY] to run Setup” where [KEY] might be Delete, ESC, or one of the F1–F12 keys.
  4. Once the BIOS Setup Utility has opened, look for a tab labeled Boot, Boot Order, or Boot Options.
