suggestions for virus scan from bootable disk

  cave dweller 20:22 15 Jul 04

i have been looking around for an anti virus software that will work fom a bootable cd on any pc and will scan all files on fat and ntfs partitions, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I use Norton Internet Security 2004, with that you can boot from the installation cd and do a virus scan.

I am sure the earlier 2002/3 also worked the same way.

McAfee allows you to create a "Rescue Disk".

i think i was hoping for one that you can create an image for burning with the up to date virus defs if thats possible , i know you can use the norton disk to scan for viruses but that doesnt have the latest virus defs and i think the mcafee disk only scans the boot records, but i may be wrong.
