    The Mrs just gave me a 4 gig u3 jump drive.
    It came with McAfee ( ugghh ) installed or i
    could install Avast. I installed Avast and
    trashed McAfee. Any suggestions as to what
    other security i can or should install ?

    Hello,
    Personally, I would format the drive, remove the u3 and the hidden partition and use it as a normal thumb drive, then perhaps install portable ClamAV.

    Hey,

    I don't know if it is possible or not yet, if NOD32 would be able to be on a U3 thumbdrive? If it is then how can i put it on the thumbdrive without installing it on the computer. My friends/I use NOD32 and it is awesome and i was just wondering. Thanks.
