Anti Virus from Jump drive


Recommended Posts

Simple answer is none.

You can install an anti virus program on a USB key, but all anti-virus programs install registry keys, and have active services that are required to run. So if you where to plug it into another computer it would do nothing.

Why do you want to run one off a USB key anyway?

This thing wont let me get to safe mode either.

Well I hate to be the one too tell you this, but your going to have to format and reinstall.

Copy anything important off to the USB key, format your computer, install a anti virus software then scanned the USB key completely.

not sure how I got this thing either. system is running trend micro security 2008 with latest updates.

Anti - virus programs are not 100% full proof. let alone 50%. A good amount will not stop viruses. And all of them will hardly ever remove the virus fully because it has no clue how many times the virus has copied it self, and what else it has done.

And there is much better antivirus software out there, some of them are free, After you get back up and running I would start using AVG over trend micro.
