Dr.Web LiveCD updated

November 20, 2008

Doctor Web — the Russian developer of IT security solutions branded Dr.Web — has updated Dr.Web LiveCD used to restore a system rendered unbootable after a virus attack.

Now Dr.Web LiveCD can also be loaded from a flash-drive using the CreateLiveUSB script. A user can specify a partition of a flash drive on which he wants to place Dr.Web LiveCD. If no partition is specified, CreateLiveUSB will enter a stand-by mode. After that a user needs to insert a flash drive into a USB-port. The script won’t change or remove any data stored on a device. However, it is recommended to backup the files on another drive before you use it to load Dr.Web LiveCD.

Besides, the updated version features support of Intel graphic chips (i810 drivers) and has issues with Matrox video cards and an X.Org video drive for Intel fixed. Some changes have also been done to rule out any boot errors.

что Dr.Web LiveCD is available for free. The updated version can be obtained at
