Have you ever used TronScript? https://www.reddit.com/r/TronScript/

It’s got a 5 or 6 step process for removing trash, viruses, malware, spyware, rootkits, windows 8 & 10 bloatware, and windows 10 telemetry. You can skip steps by editing the batch file.

Uses AntiMalwarebits and Sophos, which it downloads and installs from the internet. Takes anywhere from 10 minutes to 8 hours (for a badly infected machine).

Don't know about a pen drive boot but Kaspersky worked best for me when I've had to remove viruses. The removal tool is available for download for free - I believe.

Afternoon all, seems I have acquired a virus from an email. Any recommendations on something I can boot from a pen drive.
