Sorry, I accidentally posted this before in the Windows forum. This is where it belongs.

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?

There are many security programs that can be run from a flash drive. One of which is SUPERANTISPYWARE's Portable Scanner. (If that link doesn't work, click here and it will be the first result)
There is also Flash Disinfected which is used to clean up infected flash drives.
To use Flash Disinfector, you would follow these instructions:

You posted very same question on 15+ forums: http://www.google.co...lient=firefox-a and twice on this forum.

Don't you think, it's little bit excessive?
