Antispyware to boot into a different OS for efficient spyware removal

...As security systems have become more robust and smarter at detecting and removing these malicious little bastards, so the bastards have dug deeper and found their way into systems files and other places that your security is not allowed to go.

Enter PC Tools' new spyware killer, AOSS (alternate operating system scanner). As the name suggests this program boots into a different OS, namely a modified version of Linux, to allow the scanner run independently of Windows. This serves the purpose of being able to access areas that the Vole normally doesn't allow us to tread. Anti-spyware anesthetises your OS before going to work
