Anti spyware/maleware/virus boot disk?

A few months back when I was reading these forums I remember one of the experts here recommending a free program to do this. Can one of you tell me the link to get this kind of a thing so I can create a boot disk to do this kind of stuff for Windows that won't run?

for example, kaspersky, avg or avira.

there are probably many more, but those are the first three that sprung to mind )and i've never tried any of them).

Hope you find something usable. Credit to JAV for the list.

I've never used them before but the Avira and Bitdefender are often suggested.
Good luck.

Windows 7 built in anti-virus & spyware programs
Windows 7 built in anti-virus & spyware programs. Are they worth keeping? On my XP, Avira worked just fine, along with some spyware programs. Your thoughts.
