You can add a Kaspersky 2012 (Rescue Disk 10) ISO to your grub4dos bootable USB drive or create a bootable USB drive from scratch with the Tutorial below. It is largely based on the guide here but the update script has been enhanced.
grub4dos boot menu (click for a larger version).
The background wallpaper is included in the tutorial download.
Before you make a bootable USB drive, you first need to make an up-to-date Kaspersky Rescue Disk ISO file. You can download one from the Kaspersky web site, but this will be out of date. What you want is an ISO which has the latest virus definitions. To make an updated ISO file...
1A - PREPARE ISO AFTER INSTALLING KASPERKSY TRIAL VERSION (quickest, but any existing AV you have installed will be uninstalled)
1. Download and install a Trial Version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2012 from here
2. Download free trial - give name and email address (it does not have to be real!) - install, reboot, activate it.
3. Run Kasperksy AV and run a manual Update (1)
4. Go to Kaspersky - Tools and create a Rescue ISO file (2).
'Save the disk image to file on local or network drive'
5. Save the new iso file to a folder or Desktop for later use - IMPORTANT: the iso MUST be named rescue.iso
This method is based on the nice utility from Agni, but has some bug fixes and is largely automated. See here for more details.
1. Download the Kaspersky_Update_ISO_Pack from the Beta Downloads section of this website.
2. Download the out-of-date Rescue CD ISO kav_rescue_10.iso from here - it MUST be named kav_rescue_10.iso.
3. Copy the kav_rescue_10.iso file to the Kaspersky_Update_Pack folder and right-click on diskupdt.cmd and Run as Administrator - this may take over an hour to complete and eventually makes a new ISO file called rescue.iso which will include the latest updates.
4. Copy the file rescue.iso file to the Desktop for later use.
1. Download the Kaspersky_USB_Files.zip from the Beta downloads section and unpack the files to a new, empty folder called (for instance) KASP on you hard disk
2. Copy your pre-prepared rescue.iso file from the Desktop to the KASP\rescue\ folder - note the file MUST be called rescue.iso (lower case) and MUST be in the rescue folder.
3. Download RMPrepUSB and install it (or use the Portable version) and run RMPrepUSB.
Set the RMPrepUSB settings to:
If you already have a bootable grub4dos drive, copy all of the files from the KASP folder over (except the menu.lst) and combine the KASP\menu.lst file with the one you already have.
4. Now click on the RMPrepUSB Install grub4dos button - choose MBR (Yes) and hit Enter when prompted to copy over the grldr file.
5. Check your file structure on the USB drive is correct (press F2 in RMPrepUSB):
The files in \rescue\help are help files for you to read and are in different languages. You can delete them if you want to save space.
The menu.lst entry for the Kaspersky Rescue Disk is quite straight-forward (press F4 in RMPrepUSB to load it into Notepad):
If you wish, press F11 in RMPrepUSB to start the QEMU emulator and boot (slowly!) the USB drive from within Windows. The screenshots shown on this page were all taken from a QEMU emulation session.
To change the wallpaper, see the GFXMenu section in the grub4dos tutorial. You will need to make a new message file.
6. Now click on Eject in RMPrepUSB and plug your USB drive into a computer and boot from it.
1. When the computer boots from the USB drive - hit a key within 10 seconds as prompted and then choose a language - then select Graphic mode (see screenshot below):
- hit a key when prompted - when you are asked to accept licence agreement by pressing A - it may not work! Instead, just press ALT+TAB - then let go and press A
2. Once you get to the linux desktop, click Start Objects Scan to start a scan.
3. If you need to update the virus definitions and have internet access (Ethernet or WiFi), press the WINDOWS key (on the left of your space bar) on your keyboard (or click on the blue&white arrow icon at the bottom-right of the screen) and choose Network Setup.
Once you have set up your connection (and proxy server if required) you can try the browser or click on the Kasperksy My Update Center tab and Start Update.
