Users do not need to be Avira customers, and Avira invites everyone to download a copy to keep in case their current antivirus software should ever fail them.
The Avira Rescue System is designed for non-technical people to be able to clean and repair their own computers by following a wizard that leads users step-by-step. Yet the tool is powerful enough for pro PC users, too.
Avira Rescue System includes:
- A Live System that scans and repairs Windows PCs that do not boot or are unresponsive for other reasons where it is assumed that the system is infected by malware.
- A rescue system that allows copying data that would otherwise be lost to a safe place.
- A registry editor that allows manual edits to the Windows registry.
- A tool that allows Avira Support staff to remotely access the computer (if the customer agrees) to assist the customer in repairing their computer system.
