"Avira is a Linux based CD which can help you in to repair a damaged system, to rescue data or to scan the system for virus infections. The Avira AntiVir Rescue System is updated several times a day (contains the current virus definitions VDF) so that the most recent security updates are always available."
I have everything figured out except how to save the log.
The system is has midnight commander bundled with it.
Here's some tutorials on using it:
I found the log from the scan and it's located at /var/log/antivirlog.txt, (this is as far back as I can trace, I don't know what's before /var)
This is how they say to copy it to your hard drive: (it doesn't work)
copy the logfile:
type cp /tmp/avlogfile /mnt/hda1/log.txt. This will copy the log file to C:\log.txt. In case your C drive is mounted to another directory, like /mnt/sda1 or /mnt/hda2, you should change the command accordingly.
Any suggestions on how to do this, I know nothing about Linux.
If you wanted to make and install the disk:
Avira AntiVir Rescue System .iso can be downloaded HERE.
It is also be located on ThisPage, look for Avira AntiVir Rescue System .iso not the .exe.
Make note of where you downloaded it to.
Next....download and install Active@ ISO Burner
Click HERE for ISOBurner Instructions.
Install the program, and follow the next set of steps.
After you install Active@ ISO Burner, double click on the Avira AntiVir Rescue System .iso you downloaded.
Active@ ISO Burner should automatically open up.....now click BURN.
After the rescue cd is made, remove it from the computer and boot-up the sick computer up using it.
Note : In order to do so, the computer must be set to boot from the CD first.
For information on how to do that....click HERE.
The default language is German, but you can change it to English anytime by clicking on the English flag on the lower-left side of the screen.
Leave the default setting except for Scan Mode:
Change it to Scan Boot Sectors Only
Then run the scan, it will only take seconds and won't make any changes to your system but will create a log.
To get to Midnight-Commander, just run Command from Avira then alt + F5 to get to it.
