    Anyone knows any portable antivirus with realtime monitor which could run from a usb flash drive? And it should be able to run the realtime monitor if the usb flash drive is pluging in from one computer to another computer.

    Thank you

    I think that VirusChaser USB edition might be what you are looking for. See more about it here.

    I use avast u3 edition. I carry it around on my u3 flashdrive. It has a real time scanner along with an on demand scanner.

    I use Avast U3 edition aswell. It is excellent program. :thumb: You can find it here. There is also ClamWin portable (not U3) here.

    Hello!

    McAfee also has one, you can find it here. I dont know how good it is. In my opion Avast is the best at the moment.

    Thank you all for replying, what I mentioning is a portable antivirus with realtime monitor as well as on demand scanner for a normal usb pendrive :)........

    Portable Clamwin is a scanner, no realtime monitor available, avast U3 is for U3 pendrive :( and mcafee USB U3 is meant for U3 pendrive as well....... and I doubt that these two come with realtime monitor.

    Any other choice for portable antivirus with realtime monitor for normal USB pendrive (Not U3 Pendrive)?

    Thank you

    For "normal" USB drives with real-time monitoring, Virus Chaser USB is your best bet. You can get it at either http://www.viruschaser.com.hk/eng/ or http://www.viruschaser.com.au

    I believe VC USB edition also supports Dr.Web's heuristic analysis....
