Operating system unnecessary?

Recommended Posts

Is it safe to assume that Malwarebytes-on-a-stick carries its own OS?  For example, assume a computer is operational (nothing is broken and I can get to SETUP), but it will NOT boot into an OS.  Other utilities (such as Norton Ghost) boot from the CD under these conditions.  Without a working OS, Malwarebytes can't use that computer's Internet connection.  Is the procedure to update the stick using a working computer, then try to work magic on the infected one?


It has only been a few years (post Pentium IV) since USB support was provided by the BIOS without the need of a working OS.  Again, the A word - is it safe to assume that Malwarebytes-on-a-stick cannot function with a computer that does not support USB without an OS?
