What should I put on disk?

  1. A friend at work says he has a trojan, it pops up and tells him so. That is all I know, don't know if it is real or if it is just one of those spyware things that does that. I am going to look at it but won't have access to the internet. Can I put the setup of adaware and avg on a disk and install on his computer without internet connection? We are at work where I won't have one. Or is there another suggestion?

    Try Clamwin.

    It's 6Mb download which you can install on a CD-RW, You can it from there assuming your friend has a CD player on his PC.

    Thank You that looks great. Is it as good as AVG? I haven't used it before.

    To me, AVG isn't really all that great, so yes, I find it better.
    It would be a great start in finding any problems.
    When it comes to portable software, there aren't too many choices, but Clamwin does have exceptional reviews.

    Work computer is not user's property and it shouldn't be played with.
    The computer is a company's property.
    It's up to IT people to take care of any issues.

    It is his personal laptop.
