Anvi Rescue Disk
Considering all the cyber attacks and malware infections that you are exposed to when using an Internet connection, standard antivirus programs may fail to detect and clean various spams, especially boot-sector viruses, which are also known as ransomware.
Ransomware typically acts as a trojan but the main difference between this and any average virus is that once it gets onto your system, it will restrict the access to your computer by encrypting all your personal files on the hard drive.
What’s more important to know is that, if you will ever get infected with these kinds of trojans, you will lose total control over your system.
Being designed to restrict the interaction with the system, it manages to set the Windows Shell to itself and even modifying the master boot record (shortly known as MBR, which aims to restrict the access to an infected computer).
Therefore, you might consider it twice when it comes to accessing unsecure websites, or even downloading suspicious files and applications from untrusted developers.
If your computer is not capable to boot into safe mode or worse, it doesn’t want to start anymore, then a disk rescue is needed and here is where Anvi Rescue Disk comes in handy. It helps you to save and protect your computer against these trojans.
