Rescue CDs saves you a trip to GeekSquad

Being tech savvy I get ask a lot to help fix friends and families computer problems. Most of the time their computers are infected and I remove them using one of many freeware Antivirus or Adware programs in safemode. It is important to run in safe mode as the infected computers spreads when you in regular Windows.

An alternate solution is to make a bootable rescue CD. AVG for example offers a free Rescue CD that you can burn to disc. Once you computer gets infected you just pop in the CD and it will scan the computer before Windows boots up.
