flash drive resident antimalware app?

Recommended Posts

A while back someone suggested having, as part of your antimalware arsenal, some app that could be installed on a flash drive which could supposedly detect any spyware / malware on whatever computer the flash drive was plugged into. (I think the app was DOS-based, and it could work even if the system was severely compromised, although I'm not sure about those two points.) Could anybody tell me about this app? And would it detect a key logger?

Hi BobLewiston,

There are a few apps out there that run portable or off flash drives. But they are very limited. If you have a scandisk U3 drive, then you can get McFee virus scan for it. Check this site out http://portableapps.com/ .

Edit: You cannot run a portable app in real-time. However you sometimes can boot from then, or mostly just run them.
