Live CD Virus/Spyware Scanners.

  1. I would think this would be a good idea, but I do not know if this exists or not. Are there any Virus/Spyware Programs that do not install on windows and actively protect it, rather they can just be run off a cd/dvd or a USB drive. They then scan and find any problems, and fix it. All by running live off the device, while not installing or running each time you boot. I was just wondering if someone like these exists, and if so where and what...

    This could be good for fixing computers and helping out less techy friends/relatives with their problems without installing your software on their pc...
