    I'm looking for a good antivirus that I can put onto a USB stick and run it in safe mode on a PC, any suggestions and links.

    Don't know about Safe Mode, but I have scanned by this Trend Micro Sysclean Package as usual through an USB Flash Memory Stick.

    I'm not too sure, its called mcafee stand alone virus scanner. I download the latest version each week to scan with. The latest version (2006/12/15) has 220919 viruses, trojans and variants in its database.

    Can you please tell us where exactly you get this mcafee stand alone scanner?

    I have honestly never heard of it, aside from stinger. I am very curious because I have great trust in mcafee's signatures.

    I actually download it from the edskes file download mirror website which has a whole bunch of codec packs and other useful programs freely available for download.

    http://mirror.edskes.net/

    You'll find it about 3/4 of the way down the page.
    Strangely enough i cannot find this particular on demand scanner on the mcafee website so i do wonder where this website gets it from.
