Editorial review

AVG Rescue is a popular and reputable piece of antiviral software that is typically used on PC. With AVG Rescue, you can carry it wherever you go and launch powerful protection on any other computer you happen to use. All you need to do is insert your USB flash drive in the computer and start the antivirus. It's a great solution in case your computer has been infected by a virus that doesn't let the system start. As you know, antivirus installed on your computer can't do anything to solve the problem unless the system is running. Now, you can activate the program directly from your USB flash drive and get the job done without starting Windows.


As any other program, the first thing AVG Rescue does is virus scan. You can perform a full scan or only scan separate elements like inside archives, cookies, or just scan for potentially unwanted programs. Once the scan is completed, you go to the Rescue menu and choose one of the suggested options.

Special tools

The program comes with a bunch of additional security tools that makes the job much easier to complete. You'll find a file manager, Windows Registry Editor, Midnight Commander, TestDisk, a special utility for drive recovery, Ping, tester, etc.


You'll need to have about 300 MB of free space on your USB flash drive.


All in all, this program is a life savior when you use multiple computers or have one infected machine that you can't rescue with another antivirus. It's a good idea to always keep it on your USB flash drive just in case of emergency. The only annoying thing about this application is an extremely slow scanning speed, but that's not such a big deal when you're trying to save your computer from a serious danger.
