Rescue Disk Broken AGAIN
[...]
I've created the Media while the Avast Self Defense was active and while it was turned Off.
That same error appears in both scenarios.
Being told that the rescue disc was successfully created and then finding out when you need it that it doesn't work isn't good.  :(
Confirmed, similar reports in the German section.

Is Avast supposed to look at each computer and determine what files it needs for Bootable Media ?
Or does the user creating a Rescue Disk or USB need to first put those files on it for it to be able to
boot and then and the file Avast would run ?

You apparently don't know how this works or have never tried it. Please do so.
This is how it's supposed to work:

You would think something this important would have been worked on.

It's still broken.  >:(

Lots of time has passed but this is apparently still broken:

Is any one actually working in this to try to fix it ???

Avast has acknowledged it is a bug, but no time estimate given for a fix.

Shame since this is such a useful feature and has been broken for weeks.

Thanks, what makes this so important is the fact that unless you actually boot from the Rescue Media, you assume that everything is OK.
If you should ever need that Media, that's when you find out that what you're depending on to get you out of trouble, has it's own trouble and doesn't help.
