    Antivirus that runs on a cd

    Does anyone know of a good Antivirus that boots off of a cd and searches the hard drive? That way windows doesn't even start up, it just runs off the cd, independently.
    do it now and ask for forgiveness later

    You could create a Bart PE CD and use a plugin to put AVG on that. This page says it has the plugin you would need: http://www.bootcd.us/BartPE_Plugins_.../plugsite/asc/ That should do what you want.

    Hi

    Seems that Bitdefender has created a LiveCD[1] as well for Linux as for Windows (FAT32 and NTFS). Antesis has its product Chonomium[2].

    However, I don't know how up-to-date they are (intrinsic problem of AV LiveCD's ?)

    Cheers.

    /edit: Ha, finally I found it on the LiveCD list as well[3a,3b]

    But with bart cd you can use almost all console based av's or that that have bart plugins for visual mode.
    Mwav t.ex. ..... older vesion of this "freeware" tool can remove virus and it is also powered by Kaspersky (vir. def. can be updated from kaspersky ftp). Now thay made one version for sale of this tool (one month license).

    DrWeb is also one av that "not need install". Use console mode from Bart CD.

    Here is link to info about "old" boot cd av's

    Macafee can be used from bart cd too.
    And you can put few different avtiviruses on one cd, and antispywares too.

    also I use Knoppix & F-prot.

    Scanning for viruses with Knoppix
    That article on Knoppix is great. Does anyone know if there is a similar way to use Knoppix to do spyware scanning as well?

    there is another guy - i think it's irongeek - that does a Bart PE w/ spyware thingy. you could probably use his method and just add the AV to it as well. (not Knopp - but one of the other windowz AV's)
