Anvi Rescue Disk was designed to be used when regular antivirus software fails in detecting and cleaning a system of various infections. The ISO can be burned on a CD/DVD using your disc burner or choice. It can also be placed on a bootable USB device and launched from there.
Here's how it works: set your system to boot from the CD / DVD/ USB device, insert the disc or the stick and restart the system. After a quick loading process, you are acquainted with the interface of Anvi Rescue Disk.
You simply select the scan or repair button to fix the ransomware viruses on your PC. The Rescue Disk then delivers a report of all malicious objects found in your system, such as viruses and Trojans, but also adware and other similar software. Infected files can be quarantined, disinfected, or removed.
In conclusion, Anvi Rescue Disk is a great way to remove threats that can't be cleaned by standard antivirus solution. It requires quite the amount of effort (burning the CD / DVD/USB drive), but it succeeds where other security solutions fail.

Version: Anvi Rescue Disk 1.1
Boots to a useful Linux Desktop with some fairly useful tools. Does a scan and removes the threats it finds for free.
was unable to remove the threat in question. With it being Linux you can't just plug in a thumb drive and have it be recognized so you can easily copy files to it.
My friend got infected with the ICE Cyber Crime Center Ransomeware and none of the removal instructions worked. It somehow kept you from being able to boot in safe mode, as soon as you did it would shut down the computer. So I used my working computer to create this disk and booted my friends computer from it. This is after creating a Kaspersky boot disk, waiting 2 hours for it to run a scan that didn't find a damn thing. This one ran a scan and found something like 20 threats, removed them, rebooted the computer and it still had the same problem. Booted to this disk again, ran the scan again, didn't find ay issues, ran the registry checker as well but to no avail. I ended up using their directory tool to browse the files on the drive, then used their built in web browser to login to my Dropbox account and uploaded all of his important stuff to that, then downloaded them on my computer to a thumb drive. Then we did a clean install of Windows XP Pro on his machine then copied his stuff from a thumb drive. I don't think I could have gotten his files off of his computer without this disk. Too bad it was unable to remove the ICE ransomeware.
