Last time one of my friends computer was infected by viruses and  computer totally won’t boot. I cannot get into  Windows desktop and only showing some bla bla messages. Then I try to boot computer using the Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10, and attempt to scan and remove any viruses found inside  Windows. Then, after the scan and removal process finished, I reboot the computer and amazingly its running again.
