    I tried ClamWin, but I'd like to try some others if there are any. I found ClamWin through Gizmo's Freeware but I don't think they had any other portables, at least I didn't see any others. Any recommendations?

    I found Microsoft Safety Scanner and gonna try it out. I use MS's mrt.exe quite a bit and this looks like an expanded version of that. I don't really like that it deletes files it finds automatically, but hopefully since it's MS it'll have a pretty good idea of what's supposed to be in Windows and what's not. :D

    Appreciate the links 7anon. I'm liking this Microsoft Security Scanner and will use it for awhile, but it's good to have the links for future reference. :)
