Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper (MSSS) has been renamed Windows Defender Offline.

Windows Defender Offline (formerly known as Standalone System Sweeper Beta) is a bootable standalone antimalware program that runs from a bootable disk and is designed to scan infected systems while their operating systems are offline.

Although the name is similar, do not confuse Windows Defender Offline with Windows Defender which is included with all versions of Windows 7 and Vista as part of the operating system.

To use Windows Defender Offline, you will need a blank CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with at least 250 MB of free space.

The PC must have the same Windows operating system (OS) architecture (32-bit or 64-bit) as Windows Defender Offline. Bootable media created on any version of Windows can be run on any other version of Windows. The only thing that needs to match is the architecture of Windows Defender Offline and the OS of the infected machine.

Hello,
 
So we have to download it, and then using a CD or USB drive, create a healing rebootable support.
Do you have a link with tutorial to complete the task.
For this utility would certainly avoid heavy lifting and especially in times.
thank you for this very useful information.
cordially

See the last three links in post #2. I edited that reply to include those and removed two which were not applicable.

Hello,
 
I see that there are constraints, the only thing that is must match the architecture of the Windows Defender Offline and OS of the infected machine.
I understand the rebootable key can only be used on the system that created it. So if I have a concern, I can not use the key made ​​on my PC to troubleshoot the PC of my son.

Another limitation:

If you created a CD or DVD you shouldn't reuse it; it contains definitions to help it detect malware. Definitions are updated frequently so the definition files on the CD or DVD will be out of date. If you created a USB flash drive, you can reuse it. Windows Defender Offline will update the definitions when you rerun the wizard.
