what is the Best Anti-virus Rescue Disk?

Hi,

Is there a perfect Anti-virus rescue disk that really works?
I know kaspersky rescue disk (if works) can be very good, but in 99% of times it doesn't work.
One which works in both CD/DVD and USB flash memory will be great!

Is there any suggestion?
thanks in advance.

Outside of myself, I don't think anything is perfect, with that said, you could try Arira's Rescue Disk;

The best rescue is when you make images and set back to a prior image (prior to the infection). With the AV rescue discs you may be able to remove the virus, but you cannot repair the damage that the virus has caused.

@Deutschland: what do mean by AV rescue disk? the Avira? My goal is only to clean the machine. You think Avira is better choice?

Thanks.

@sir george:
Is it possible to boot that avira rescue disk from USB flash memory rather than CD/DVD?
