    Five portable antivirus and antimalware tools to carry with you at all

      The article writer says they are portable, so I downloaded Kaspersky to test it.
      First of all, it is NOT 700k, it is 124 MEGS.
      Second, I downloaded the initial .exe to my flash drive and clicked install, then when it finally finished I discovered Kaspersky installed itself to my hard drive instead of the flash drive.
      Third, it prompted my to scan my computer without downloading the updated virus signatures.
      Fourth, my guess is that the author wrote this article in 1/2 hour and didn’t bother to actually download and test any of these himself, so it’s a garbage article. Does he get paid by the word and write 20 articles a day?

        Hi erik, sorry for the error, when I use kaspersky Security Scan many years ago, it was portable, probably they changed the way it runs now. I updated the article and added 3 more to the list few days ago. Thanks for informing me, I will update the article.

      Thanks for the info. Zemana and Hitman are freemium, thus not in the list but I think it is worth including. I’ll include all 3 when I update the article.

    Thanks but Zemana portable free – (Zemana.AntiMalware.Portable.exe) is a recent introduction which is permanently free and not a trial version. It is different to the trial Premium version you show. It is a completely portable cloud version which I use all the time from a usb stick to check for pc infections.

    Avira also installed on the hard and superseded and disabled windows defender. I agree with erik that the author didn’t actually test these programs. Incidentally Trend Micro Housecall doesn’t install and it is not even mentioned. I definitely don’t want any of them to install either and both Kaspersky and Avira did indeed install. I gave up after the second. This list is inaccurate if you want to use AVs that don’t install.

    Thank you very much… Had a few Problems in my Registry and no antivirus was working.
    Also i couldnt install a new one… But this gives me hope..
    Thanks for the list

      Glary utilities portable to fix the registry errors? It also comes with a worthwhile (though vastly inferior) anti-malware. Though it sounds like you might be in need of a repair disk if your system is that damaged. Kaspersky seems to have one of the best on the market right now but I personally prefer Avira or Avast for rescue disks as Kaspersky has issues on USB.

    Emsisoft has begun to play dirty with non-configurable pop-up ad that always appears whenever the application closes. After more than 10 years in existence, what was a wonderful free backup scanning solution turned into a monstrosity.

    i only use antivirus apps that work alongside other anti-malware apps, kapersky and so many others want to own our systems so they don’t get my approval
