VIPRE Rescue

VIPRE Rescue

The VIPRE Rescue Program is a command-line utility that will scan and clean an infected computer that is so infected that programs cannot be easily run. Scanning features rootkit detection, deep scan, and can log events.

I have written a lightweight portable GUI for handling scanning and downloading of updates.
Please take note that this is a very large program (200+ MB). Pay special attention to the warnings in the script interface.
