How to start your system using Spybot’s Boot CD?

The Boot CD Creator allows you to create a bootable CD to repair or clean your computer.

Some computers are set up to prefer booting from bootable removable media if inserted, others do have this feature disabled to protect the computer from infections coming from untested media.

Most computers allow you to press a special key while booting to select the device to boot up from:

Press key during boot

If you manage to identify which key it is and press it in time, you’ll get a choice of bootable devices; pick the CD-ROM there:

Pick CD-ROM from boot menu

If you are unable to enter a boot menu, which allows you to boot from something else than the hard disk in that single instance, you can change the general boot order. Enter the BIOS first by pressing the BIOS key, then locate the boot order setting and move the CD-ROM to the top:
