<p>First time offering assists IT professionals to repair damaged files instantly</p>
<p>Avalanche Technology Group, the Australian/New Zealand distributor of AVG security software, today introduced AVG Rescue CD, a new offering for IT professionals designed to remove and repair damage caused by viruses, spyware and other malicious programs on computers running Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server.

<p>“AVG Rescue CD is an useful tool for IT pros enabling them to efficiently remove dangerous software from exploited PCs with the same level of confidence they enjoy with other AVG products,” said Larry Bridwell, Global Security Strategist for AVG. “IT pros will also be able to take advantage of comprehensive administrative tools and features to make them more productive.”</p>
<p>Running on MS Windows PE, AVG Rescue CD includes Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware and a set of administration tools and utilities. It also features a file manager, a Windows registry editor, a scan disk tool for testing hard drive integrity, a detailed IP Config tool, and more.</p>
