Norton Bootable Recovery Tool lets you deal with aggressive infections that even block your system from starting up. This is a powerful, “last resort” system fixing utility that can save your computer and your data when nothing else seems to work. This tool can solve security problems even when other Norton products are unable to do so, being able to detect and remove viruses, spyware, and other security risks from your computer.

The Norton Bootable Recovery Tool Wizard is a neat and simple utility that works in conjunction with the aforementioned tool and lets you create a customized copy of it. This customized copy of Norton Bootable Recovery Tool is actually the solution that can fix the computer in case of an infection, when other security tools fail. The customized copy will be stored on a portable media device. When the unwanted infection occurs and no other cleaning method works, this device containing the Norton Bootable Recovery Tool will help boot the system and start in a safe environment which allows successfully performing its cleaning. It eventually brings your system back to a healthy state.

Using Norton Bootable Recovery Tool Wizard is simple; it’s a “wizard” after all. Unfortunately, its effective usage is conditioned by quite a lot of factors. For example, if you don’t have a DHCP connection you cannot update the virus definitions used by Norton Bootable Recovery Tool to detect the threats. If you use wireless network connection, proxy connection or static IP, you cannot update and properly use this tool. Furthermore, Norton Bootable Recovery Tool uses a set of commonly used network and storage drivers, but if these drivers are not compatible with your system, Norton Bootable Recovery Tool might not run on your computer. Anyway, since it’s free, I still think it might be worth a try. After all, it could represent the difference between a unrecoverable infected system and a healthy, cleaned computer.
