Avast bootable floppy?

Am running the Home Ed on win98se and am wondering if there is a bootable floppy with avast on it.

Avast periodically creates a virus recovery database (VRDB) instead of a emergency disk.  You should create a Windows emergency bootable floppy though.  Refer to the Help Files on how the VRDB works.  Also, do a search in this forum for "VRDB" and "Virus Recovery Database."

Another option is making a bootable floppy or CD and run applications for DOS:
avast 7.7 DOS version Key: AS770.A123456-24DB67 and Updates or here


F-Prot for DOS and Updates
BitDefender Free Edition for DOS

For other boot tools see the section CD Boot here.  ;)

avast! in a bootable CD is available at BART CD page.
