I am looking for some help finding the best USB programs that can be used for Virus and Spyware detection, I need an all inclusive flash drive to work on computers I already have some great tools but I want to use the best and would like to hear from some users what they have tried good or bad that works with USB.

I have found one USB program but I am right in the middle of testing it so I don't have any feed back yet on this program. Dr. Web Cure It

Dr. Web Cureit Is a very good one it scans for virus's spyware etc, I use it,
only problem is you have to re-download it every time you want the newest detections, and a few FP's but otherwise dr. web's AV does well in AV tests,

you can check out these sites,

http://portableapps.com/
http://www.portablefreeware.com/
http://www.portablefreeware.com/?sc=115

and for portable security programs I use there's

Clamwin Portable
http://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/clamwin_portable

ewido micro scanner (Same thing as AVG anti-spyware just portable)
http://www.ewido.net/en/onlinescan/
go to the micro scanner link with a browser other than internet explorer or download it from here it's at the botom look for ewido micro
http://downloads.ewido.net/

or Prevx CSI it's like dr. web it scans for virus's spyware etc. but it doesn't remove it you have to buy the full version to remove what it detects,
http://info.prevx.com/downloadcsi.asp

and then there's also command line scanners,

A-squared Command line scanner

it's been awhile since I've looked so there are probably more.
