Security company Avira recently announced that it launched Avira Rescue System, a free “First Aid Kit” for scanning and fixing infected PCs.

Great news for non-technical people who want an efficient and user friendly tool to clean their infected PCs. Avira started the month by announcing the launch of Avira Rescue Ssytem, a tool described as a “First Aid Kit” for scanning and fixing infected PCs. Just by following a wizard, non-technical users can clean and repair their PCs.

“We can save you a trip to the computer repair shop, and a lot of headaches as well,” said Andreas Flach, vice president of products and services for Avira. “Just as everyone should have a first aid kit in the house, we want everyone to keep a copy of Avira Rescue System handy. In most cases it will help you get your system up and running again, and you don’t need to be an Avira customer to use it. Rescue System will even back up your data and give you a second opinion to any scan or repair diagnosis coming from another antivirus product. ”

The following components are offered by Avira Recue System:
  • For unresponsive PCs and for PCs that do not boot, there’s a Live System that scans and repairs a system infected by malware.
  • To make sure important data is not lost, there’s a rescue system that can copy said data to a safe location.
  • Manually edit the Windows Registry with a registry editor.
  • A tool that can be used by Avira’s support staff to remotely connect to the customer’s PC and help that customer fix their system.

Avira Rescue System is available for Microsoft’s Windows operating system in English and German.
The security tool can also run on Ubuntu as an independent application.

You can download Avira Rescue System for free straight from the developer here.

It is available as an EXE and as an ISO image – both are about 580Mb in size.
