Windows Defender Offline Beta can help remove such hard to find malicious and potentially unwanted programs, rootkits, and viruses that aren't constantly running processes and only act at startup or at unpredictable times. To get started, find a blank CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with at least 250 MB of free space and then download and run the tool—the tool will help you create the removable media.
To use Windows Defender Offline Beta, you need to follow four basic steps:
- Download Windows Defender Offline Beta and create a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive.
- Restart your PC using the Windows Defender Offline Beta media.
- Scan your PC for malicious and other potentially unwanted software.
- Remove any malware that is found from your PC.
