Forth, To be honest, using a Live CD/DVD to boot up the infected Windows

Get/find/make a better live CD/DVD?

The kicker is finding all of the tools within Linux [Ubuntu] to do all of the cleaning that I do on a Windows system. A lot of anti-virus and other security/cleaning products seem not to be available for Linux users. On my desktop, that is now just a "file server", I have Comodo's version for Linux. That is the only package - of that type - that I use to keep my Windows systems [ Comodo Internet Suite for Windows ]. There are a lot more security/cleaning packages that I add to it when going through a system, drive, or even a file. That is one reason I have a lot of CPU speed reduced for my work on Win10 systems. I make sure there is a 99.99% chance of nothing getting past my security setup.

I do have a Live CD for fixing the GRUB issues that installing a new version of Windows causes.

I have a Live CD/DVD that has some very basic cleaning software on a dedicated Linux disk. Most time, the systems I am asked to fix need more fixes than that Live media has options for. Most time these systems cannot update or run the Windows security software.
