    I've seen portable Antivirus apps that will fit and run off a USB thumbdrive but how about portable Firewalls application, is there any than I can download and place on a USB stick/thumbdrive.

    My God...!!! it's too heavy to carry a concrete firewall around. You have to be a superman to do that, I mean a super mouse...:D :D :D just kidding...:D :D

    Haven't heared and used yet a portable firewall. But, i think there's no need for that coz windows has its own built-in firewall capable enough to withstand inbound attacks from alien invasion. ;) :cool:

    For firewalls to work effectively in Windows, they need to make changes to system/network setup that require a reboot to take effect. This would greatly remove the point of such portability.

    Here's one called AS3 but it only has IP/Port control - no app control:

    Install it and copy the folder to your USB drive. No driver installed. It does add a reg key though.

    i dont see the use of having a firewall on a usb key. if u want to protect the data on ur drive, u can try a portable encryption tool.

    mcafee was supposed to have antivirus and firewall for U3 drives a while back, but i guess its nonexistent now.
