Attempting to address the threat. Downloaded "defender offline" as per instructions. Cannot get it on a blank CD and cannot get it on a bootable CD. Microsoft support on this has been less than effective. Guidance sought
I would try viper rescue first. I have used this in the past, and it has worked great. You should be able to put it on a cd/usb and boot to it. It works well because windows is not loaded at all.
Appreciative of your timely reply. The problem is that I have created a bootable CD but I cannot get either the AVG rescue disk or the Windows defender Offline rescue on the disc. Every thing I've read has major holes in the documentation so that I can get moving on a remedy.
