A while back someone suggested having, as part of your antimalware arsenal, some app that could be installed on a flash drive which could supposedly detect any spyware / malware on whatever computer the flash drive was plugged into. (I think the app was DOS-based, and it could work even if the system was severely compromised, although I'm not sure about those two points.) Could anybody tell me about this app? And would it detect a key logger?

Edit: Sorry, this should have been posted in the Applications forum.

The first question is "Do you have a malware problem now"
If the answer to that is YES
Post on Security and Malware Forum please


This is one such application. PLEASE NOTE I CANNOT vouch for its effectivesness or integrity.
I certainly would NOT run it on an installed working system, until I had tested it on a hard drive installation of no consequence.

Personally I use Comodo free firewall and Microsoft Security Essentials.
Nothing has ever got past them yet.
Once anything does, or indeed with any system, I personally would use Microsofts own free Protection Scan and if that failed something like Malwarebytes together with HiJack this.
