BART.
LGBYF

(PS) I'm not at all certain, but I consider it likely that Bart Simpson would be more likely to be working for the other side

a little more research from your side would be nice, as at the link above you can read that the avast Bart cd is a bootable antivirus enviroment which you can use when you pc has been infected.
To prevent virusses from spreading you need to boot into the Bart PE enviroment so the virusses wont be loaded like if you would boot from the harddrive.
After booting you have several tools available to do system health checks and remove virusses.

So it's like the UBCD - as that has a bootable anti-malware environment.

Also, what does BART stand for, I can't figure it out. Thanks.  ???

I am a bit confused here, this BART CD, surely it can out date itself?

Also does this BART only support certain systems?

Thank you.

bart = Bootable Anti-virus Recovery Tools  as stated in the mouseover in the posting from Tarq57

the avast is up to date when you update it at the moment you write it
you can repeat this proces a lot of times everytime costing you a cd or if your smart a rewritable cd

BART also has some network drivers in it, surely it doesnt support all the cards so u have to be lucky for that, but if it does have support then you can
let bart update it self at that moment for that session via internet connection

but when you get infected by a new virus you always download the most recent definitions right..... so same goes for bart cd except you have to bake the cd after it

and i believe that bart runs of the WINPE enviroment, not linux....  (any avast tech here can confirm this?)
