Download of enhanced AARS-Testversion for CD, USB Stick or (external) HDD

Hello Rescue System Friends,

as I announced in this thread, I just finished a testversion of AntiVir Rescue System, which includes the mentioned features of my post. I put it in a zip-package, which you can download by the link below. The main content is "testaars.iso", which you can of course burn to a CDROM, but this is no more the only way to get it properly work. In the bundle is also a Linux Boot manager (Grub4DOS), which might be used to start the ISO-Image directly by example from a USB-Stick or an external HDD. An English and German documentation is of course included. You can now choose the keyboard language (English or German) , reboot the system with [Ctrl] [Alt] [Del] (in console mode) and CD tray opens (and closes) only, if there is really a CD inside. Type "help" or "hilfe" at the console mode and editor "nano" (new!) opens my documentation, when running AARS. The problem with the immediate Scan stop is solved : it's was a Linux case-sensitivity problem. The files are there, but with upper-case characters ; AARS wants it lower-case and ignores them therefore. I did not touch the virus scanner or the VDFs. Some problems with graphic cards might also be solved, because you can set another VGA-(console)-Mode by easily editing the menu script ("menu.lst"). The GUI is set to 800 x 600, which I did not change.

The best feature is the updating of VDFs : you simply have to download the latest ISO-Image and store it on the root folder of one media, which gets mounted and scanned, when AARS is running. It's automatically detected, the VDFs copied and used , even if you run AARS from a CD.

I tested my "work" with my laptops and Office PC without any problems, but I have to point out, that you use it at your own risk. In no way shall I be liable for any material or immaterial dammage to your hard- or software. By downloading and using it , you irrevocably accept this fact.

And here is the Download Link. I hope, the download will not take too much time; file sharing sites are not always very fast.

I appreciate your comments and critics. Pose your questions !

Regards

Problems with the Download Link ?

Hi Nicolae,

I just tested the Link ... and had no difficulties starting the download !

But I also found a second possibility ( at the same site) : http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?tmynlnylymm.

Hope, this works for you.

Regards

@ moderators: Does those changes get incorporated in the official AARS version?

I didn't test the versions of the last 2 months yet, but older versions didn't work from an USB stick (unpacked iso).
