How to Create ESET SysRescue Live Rescue Disk for Windows PC.

The ESET SysRescue Live is an emergency rescue disk utility that can be used to create a bootable CD/DVD, or a bootable USB drive to recover your computer for malware infections, and perform file and data recovery operations.

The ESET SysRescue Live has the most polished interface for a rescue disk, that is because it’s based on a Linux distro, Lubuntu, to be more precise. Along with the main antivirus scanning and rescue function, you get other utilities as well such as a fully functional File Manager, TeamViewer, GParted, and some other tools. You can use the File Manager to transfer important documents from the infected host computer to a removal storage device. TeamViewer can be used to get the remove assistance. GParted is a fully feature partition manager that can be used to fix partitioning related errors.


In order to create the rescue disk, we need two things – the ESET LiveUSBCreator tool, and the ESET SysRescue image file.

You can download both of these files by visiting the following official link:
