    what do you think if prevx team make a "prevx portable" ?
    me i have an usbkey with a lot portables programs (video, browser...)
    but there aren't good software protection for computer in key.

    I think if the free prevx can be make portable (only scan for exemple but not setup in system and no requier right administrator) was an good idea ?

    and you, what you think ?

    thank you,
    sorry for my english ;)

    Not requiring administrator rights is the issue for any AV trying to be portable - you will need to be running as administrator (or at least "Run as" administrator) so that it can detect rootkits/other threats.

    Protection on the system would require the installation of protection drivers so being from the USB key would be a bit of a misleading deployment option.

    You can, of course, just put it on the USB key, run it, let it scan, and then uninstall it :) Prevx does not require a reboot to uninstall and the whole process should only take a couple minutes from install/scan/uninstall :)
