    We have written a <a title="Remove malware from Windows PC" href="">Malware Removal Guide for Windows</a> which is able to remove more than 99% of today’s infections, however sometimes a PC is so severe compromised that you won’t be able to boot into Windows or install any removal tools to disinfect your system.
    If that’s the case then we can use a Kaspersky Rescue Disk to remove even the most stubborn malware infections.
    <h2>Removal Instructions for stubborn malware</h2>
    What you'll need to perform this removal guide :
    <li>A computer with Internet access.</li>
    <li>1 blank DVD or CD</li>
    <li>1 DVD/CD Burner</li>
    <li>Software which can create a bootable CD -</li>
    <li>A copy of the latest Kaspersky Rescue Disc from here -</li>
    <li>About 1 -2  hours depending on how much data you have on C:</li>
    <h2>STEP 1: Download and create a bootable Kaspersky Rescue Disk CD</h2>
    <li><>Download the Kaspersky Rescue Disk ISO</>image from below.
    <a href="" rel="nofollow"><img title="Download Kaspersky resecue disk" src="" alt="download kaspersky rescue disk" width="345" height="100" /></a></li>
    <li><>Download ImgBurn</>, a software that will help us create this bootable disk.
    <a href="" rel="nofollow"><img title="Download ImgBurn" src="" alt="download ImgBurn" width="345" height="100" /></a></li>
    <li>You can now <>insert your blank DVD/CD in your burner</>.</li>
    <li><>Install ImgBurn by following the prompts</> and then start this program.</li>
    <li>Click on the <>Write image file to disc</> button.
    <img title="Create a bootable CD" src="" alt="Create bootable CD step1" width="510" height="537" /></li>

    <img title="Browse to the Kaspersky Rescue Disk Image" src="" alt="Create bootable CD step2" width="512" height="171" /></li>
    <li>Click on the big <>Write</> button.
    <img title="Click 'Write' to create the bootable disk" src="" alt="Create bootable CD step3" width="480" height="91" /></li>
    <li>The disc creation process will now start and it will take around 5-10 minutes to complete.</li>
    <h2>STEP 2:Configure the computer to boot from CD-ROM</h2>
    <li><>Use the Delete or F2 keys, to load the BIOS menu</>.Information how to enter the BIOS menu is displayed on the screen at the start of the OS boot:
    <img title="Boot into BIOS" src="" alt="Boot into Bios" width="285" height="137" /></li>
    <li>In your PC <>BIOS</> settings select the <[b]>Boot menu</[b]> and set CD/DVD-ROM as a primary boot device.

    <li><[b]>Insert your Kaspersky Rescue Disk and restart your computer.</[b]></li>
    <h2>STEP 3:Boot your computer from Kaspersky Rescue Disk</h2>
    <li>Your computer will now boot from the Kaspersky Rescue Disk,and you'll be asked to <[b]>press any key</[b]> to proceed with this process
    <img title="Press any key" src="" alt="Kaspersky Rescue Disk 1" width="450" height="337" /></li>
    <li>In the start up wizard window that will open, <[b]>select your language</[b]> using the cursor moving keys. <[b]>Press the ENTER</[b]> key on the keyboard.
    <img title="Select your language" src="" alt="Kaspersky Rescue Disk 2" width="450" height="337" /></li>

    <img title="Start a Kaspersky Rescue Disk scan" src="" alt="Kaspersky Bootable Cd scan 3" width="385" height="404" /></li>
    <li>If any malicious items are found, the default settings are to prompt you for action with a red popup window on the bottom right. <[b]>Quarantine</[b]> is the recommended action in most cases but we <[b]>[b]ly recommend </[b]>that you try first to <[b]>Cure</[b]> the files as forms of malware may infect some critical system files.
    <img title="Kaspersky Rescue Disk detecting malicious objects" src="" alt="Kaspersky Bootable Cd scan 5" width="262" height="345" /></li>
    <li>When all detected items have been processed and removed, the light in the window will turn green and the scan will show as completed.

    and, using these tools are required to have a connection which directly connect to the internet.
    if you use as I use (USB modem) need to click "connect" via a GUI display. you can not use it.
    but, there are other ways of using CD-RW, we can re-write (update database) there first before being used on computer viruses, and also if you own only have a USB modem can be updated via a virtual machine (if you have it in your host ), if you have a direct connection "connect" that you can use (much better)

    sorry, do you understand what I'm saying?

    I want to help the visitors to this forum so not confused about; when they use a USB modem.

    thank you jack. giving detail step by step.
