I was wondering what you folks used as a portable antivirus. Whether it is a bootable Antivir CD, a usb install of ClamWin, or something else. What do you use for a portable antivirus?

Personally I use a usb copy of AntiVir with a scripted updater. Since according to AV-Comparatives most antivirus software is close to 99% effective on-demand anyways AntiVir seems to scan more quickly than others.

Skipping the obvious risks of running from USB I've been keeping my eye open for a usb stick with a read-only switch.

It's probably pretty hard to remove viruses with that, but hey whatever works for you.

Retrospective detection isn't really relevant for a portable solution. I was hoping to hear about your portable solutions from a service tech's point of view. Cleaning systems that are already compromised. Using for instance a bootable distro of say linux or bartPE with some misc antivirus. I'd be more interested in hearing about updatable solutions however

1) Kaspersky is a good AV program
2) Don't expect to have instant feedback on a forum - especially as your first post needed to be approved.
3) Don't link to a site that doesn't exist
4) Please don't take this opportunity to spam.

Thank you.
