but it works great with any bootable windows Live CD, UBCD or any of those. I agree that its a valid comment. – alpha1 Sep 4 '09 at 0:52

You could try Trinity Rescue Kit, basically a command-line, livecd based utility

It gives you 5 antivirus programs, autoupdate, and a so many other tools. And it's bootable.

Unetbootin has a few to select from such as Dr Web, Kaspersky and F-Secure. It will download an iso, and create a liveusb for you. You might also be able to use this on your own ISOs of various AV livecds if they are casper based

If you have a Sandisk USB or an U3 USB, it usually has an option to install a portable version of Avast (Home Edition) on it.
