    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
    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/download/

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