How to Repair an Infected Non-bootable Computer System

Sometimes it happens that a computer becomes so infected that you cannot run an anti-virus or diagnostic program, install any PC Repair tool, or even start the machine. A computer will likely become non-bootable when it is badly infected with malware and viruses. Running anti-virus software is almost useless in this case because there are a few infections that can avoid detection by these anti-virus programs. Any of these programs that are running on your OS cannot fix the issue completely as some infections can only be removed using a pre-boot scan or running a scan performed by using a boot disc. As boot discs do not rely on your installed OS to run, you can use a boot disc with whatever OS you are using. It can be Windows, Linux or Mac OS X. There are various boot disc tools available such as:
