===== VIPRERescue Tools =====
These scripts give increased functionality to the deep virus scanning tool, VIPRERescue.
==== VIPRERescueTempClean ====
After running the scan, the C:\VIPRERESCUE directory that is created is no longer needed and is outdated since definition updates are released at least once a day, and you have to redownload the whole package. However the C:\VIPRERESCUE directory can be as big as 300MB in size. If you need help keeping disk space under control, this might help you.

==== VIPRERescueGet ====
This is a package of scripts and programs that will automatically locate and download the newest version of VIPRERescue. This is useful if you have a virus that has disabled your web browser and you cannot get to the VIPRERescue website. If you cannot even open the web browser and have not pre-downloaded this program, you may use the direct-download FTP link. You can connect to the FTP server using either Windows Explorer (copy the address into the address bar in the Explorer window) or even the command-line program, ftp.exe, which is built into every version of Windows since Windows 95.

=== VIPRERescueGet Live ===
If in the event that malware has disabled your internet browser, I've created a "live" version that can be run without any downloading.
Here's the steps:
Alternatively, if Windows Explorer isn't working, you can use the command line tool ftp.exe. You will need to get the following files in order for the scanner to work properly:
- Open Windows Explorer, and in the address bar, copy and paste this address: ftp://ftp.floorchan.org/vipre
- You should now connect to the FTP server, download all the files you see in the directory, and place them into a empty folder anywhere on the Hard Drive.
- Run updater.bat.
- Now inside the folder that you created, there should be a file called VIPRERescue*.exe. This is a self-extracting archive that will automatically start the scan for you. Command line parameters information can be viewed here.
From there, just continue as usual, starting from step 3.
- cleanup.bat (optional)
