ERD Boot

Winternals' ERD Commander 2005 - which creates a bootable CD you can use to recover from registry failures, undo hotfixes and more. In this gallery, Erik Eckel shows you what ERD Commander 2005 has to offer. You can learn more about ERD Commander and the other tools in Winternals' Administrator's Pak in this The Right Tool for the Job? blog post.

The Administrator's Pak includes a wizard you complete to create the ERD Commander ISO image. Once you've burned the ISO image to a CD, you have an incredibly powerful rescue tool at your disposal. Just place it in a troubled PC and boot from the CD. You'll see this window as ERD Commander starts.
