images/news/windows7.jpgSometimes a rootkit virus or other malware can so thoroughly infect your PC that you canít even boot it up to repair the damage. For cases like this and other situations where malware is in so deep you canít remove it, Microsoft has a free tool called the Standalone System Sweeper.

This utility lets you create a bootable CD or USB stick that can scan for and remove the infection. It also serves as a boot disk so you can get back into Windows. The Standalone System Sweeper is currently in beta. You can download a copy from the Microsoft Connect site. There are 32-bit and 64-bit versions available, so be sure to download the correct version to support your version of Windows. If you support a mixed environment, download both versions.

Read on and get it on Connect
