How to carry a portable version of antivirus on your pen drive while travelling

software, netbook, notebook, spyware, malware, virus, irus variants, clamwin, avg, mcafee, portable apps, portable antivirus, antivirus, samsung nc20, usb flash drive, pen driveMy friend recently borrowed my Samsung NC20 for sending an important file while we were hanging out at our favourite joint. Although I have proper antivirus software installed on my notebook, he insisted on scanning my system before using it. He simply inserted his pen drive in my notebook and started a virus scan. I also need to work on multiple systems and a portable antivirus software in a USB flash drive could be really handy on the move.

ClamWin is a free antivirus software also available in a portable version for Microsoft Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003 and Vista. It is an open source code software that comes with an easy installer. You can download its portable version on your USB flash drive, and scan any system you use, to avoid virus threat and malware.

Portable ClamWin is entirely free to download, install and use. Insert your pen drive with antivirus installed to the specified system and run the virus scan. A window will open with the drives of your computer; select a single drive or multiple drives by holding down the shift key. You can also select a particular folder or files inside the drives for virus scan by double clicking the drives. ClamWin also allows you to scan your computer memory and scan selected files for viruses. It also allows you to set your preferences for the virus scan, which includes the filters, locations, limits, and reports.

It has a lot of good features such as high detection rates for viruses and spyware. I have a paid version of McAfee installed on my Samsung NC20 but even then ClamWin detected a few Trojans from my system which McAfee was unable to detect. ClamWin regularly updates its database for the new variants and strains of viruses. ClamWin is a standalone virus scanner and its portable version lacks scheduled scans and updates. It doesn’t scan your system automatically, you need to manually start the scan and choose the drives and file locations.

My work revolves around software applications and a portable antivirus definitely assures safer Internet browsing even when I am working on another notebook or netbook without any antivirus software installed. It is definitely worth a try!
