Newer Antivirus Rescue Disks (bootable CDs) - from where to download?
Currently outdated versions I have:
Avira 2017
Eset SysRescue 2018
Kaspersy RD 2018
AVG 2018
BitDefender 2017

The Bitdefender exceed 700 MB so can't be wrote on CD!

Avira - Their software suite is called 'Avira Rescue System' but they seem to no longer offer it on their site. You can find some older versions (some from 2019) on the web searching for that full name.

ESET SysRescue - Still available on their site here: https://www.eset.com/int/support/sysrescue/

Kaspersy RD - Still available on their site here: https://usa.kaspersky.com/downloads/thank-you/free-rescue-disk

AVG - https://www.avg.com/en-ww/download.prd-arl.

BitDefender - Info on their site reguarding their recovery cd stuff: https://www.bitdefender.com/support/how-to-create-a-bitdefender-rescue-cd-627.html

Run it from a thumb drive perhaps? Rufus is handy for things like this...

I burned BitDefender rescue 2019 on a DVD but it fails to load;  tried "livecd" username and startx command but I doesn't start!
the BitDefender rescue 2017 works like it should!

@atom0s:
Thanks for trying to help me, unfortunately all are outdated versions.

Not sure what you mean by outdated when those are links to the direct sources/owners of the apps?

They aren't 2019 year versions - they are older.
Maybe there is possible to update the rescues CD manually but I don't know how to do it!

Also tried to boot Bitdefender from USB flash drive: it also fail to run!

If the companies never pushed new releases, then those are the most up to date for those apps you'll get. At most, they are just shells that rely on updated definition files and such that probably have to be manually updated. I don't use AV software so I'm not familiar with any of them on how they operate specifically though.

@whoknows: I am already aware of Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool,
and I know they are updating it very often!

COMSS BootUSB is a very great one: the Lite includes only two antiviruses Dr.Web LiveDisk and Kaspersky Rescue Disk, and also includes lots of nice programs; Kaspersky Rescue Disk 2019 from COMSS BootUSB work like a charm. Many thanks whoknows.

@atom0s: All antiviruses are updated but not also the Rescue Disks.

Solved my problems regarding Eset SysRescue and Kaspersky.
For AVG I think I have to wait until they release new version.
Avira seems to drop Rescue CD.
BitDefender has boot problems in 2019 version - I don't know how to solve them!

@CodeExplorer: AVG was bought by AVAST few years ago. They kept the brand and got rid of most of the code and technologies behind AVG. Now when you install AVG, it's actually AVAST with a different skin, nothing else.

Hi. I was able to create myself BitDefender 2020 rescue disk (and works like a charm here on two computers I've test);
you can download it from: https://we.tl/t-z9g8kTxqU9
So the only antiviruses left to update: AVG and Avira!

AVG Rescue CD is some linux which looks more like DOS; also the only thing I could update is the viruses definition;
while Avast Rescue CD  is a Windows based CD which looks decent.
You can download Avast Rescue CD from here: https://we.tl/t-RphW9WWsi1
(just so you won't require to install avast_free_antivirus_setup_online.zip)

Updating Avira rescue is a work in progress!
