    The only other one I can think of, at the moment, is Hitman Pro.

    You go and restore a known good OS backup. Failing to have one, you do a fresh reinstall.

    Though, we already have (IMHO) exact same topic here.

    I don't think there's any portable official one anywhere, and attempts on making it portable clearly suggest it's not meant to be portable at all.

    Would suggest using Hitman Pro instead if you need portable.

    Yup. I second. :thumb:

    Always do scan with Hitman Pro on my friends Pc's who complain of malware infection. :)

    MBAM & Dr. Web CureIt are what i scan with after.

    Free to scan, 30 day trial for removal. You can activate the trial on as many computers as needed.

    You can activate a 30days license if it finds anything and then it will clean. So, for going around various boxes and cleaning them, that works perfectly fine.

    It has some good rootkit cleaning capabilities . Just some other utilities it can find patched system files and restore the original ones from clean Windows copies - automatically.

    The one I bring and often use when I visit clients are:
    ComboFix
    Microsoft's Autoruns
    Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
    Hitman Pro
    Norton Power Eraser

    Also : TheAvenger , Unlocker and many registry fixies or scripts for fixing this or that (that has previously been corrupted by malware attack).

    the only solution is an image or backup or re-install from scratch.
    forget the other *** answers here, they never really dealt with malware.
    im not sure they ever thought about it nor they read the ms article.

    otherwise the introducing question should be revised or extended!
