Windows Defender offline vs Kapersky Rescue Disk

So my sister's computer has a severe virus problem (aparrently). So when she comes down sunday I'm going to try to fix it.

I have downloaded Windows Defender Offline and burned to a disk (realized too late it was a DVD-r ), but I'm wondering if it will be good enough. I'm downloading Kapersky rescue disk right now, but it's taking a little while (slow internet here).

My question is: will this be good enough? I intend to run maybe both of these disks, then manually uninstall any crapware and toolbars.

I'd stick to the Kaspersky Rescue Disk .

Accidently burned WDO to a DVD-r, so going to use it anyways. But I'll use Kaperky also.

In antivirus I still think Kaspersky is one of the best out there and among the highest reputed one. I would stick to it and throw away WDO if given the chance.

I agree with you there . Toss the Windows Defender Offline disc away .

I've sworn I'd heard WDO being reccomended before...
