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?

Currently Malwarebytes Techbench is not bootable. It is only portable and therefore requires that the host Windows operating system be running in order to function.
