I'm looking for a portable AV for my USB-Stick (currently using ClamWinAV), and heard that F-Prot is good. Do they offer a free (earlier) version with up-to-date virus definitions, if so where can I download it?

F-Prot is not available for free (only a trial version) nor in a portable version.

However, Pen Drive Apps has a whole list of portable anti-virus software for you to pick from!

Looking at other recommendations like this, ClamWin should be a good pick.

No computer should be without good antivirus software. One nice Portable Antivirus solution is ClamWin Portable. ClamWin Portable is Free Open Source software that can be installed to a USB flash drive, iPod, portable hard drive or even a CD. You can then take it with you to run from any Windows computer to diagnosing and scan for viruses without leaving any traces behind.
