My friend's computer with Windows OS is infected by ransomware and I am going to make a bootable CD/USB to remove the ransomware .

I found two programs, but non of them are up-to-date:



Do you know any more up-to-date program?

I have both windows and Linux and there is no limit on payed or free program.

  • I also found deftlinux.net/about but I am not sure if it is capable of removing malwares from windows. what do u think?

  • Anything based on WinPe should do AS it is able to turn a Windows install CD into a Boot environment
