Submission + - Microsoft releases beta of Offline Windows Defende (

TheGoodNamesWereGone writes: Microsoft has released a beta of an offline version of its Windows Defender product, for those instances where the computer is just so unbelievably infected that it can't go online or access security website. Prior to this, techies cleaning up infected PCs would have to use Ultimate Boot CD or something similar, but creating those disks and keeping them updated could be something of a chore. Offline Windows Defender comes in 32 and 64 bit flavors. Will this be a help to people like me who are always cleaning diseased PCs?
