I don't even know if such software exists. I'm looking at making a "clean up" disk. I want applications I can run directly from cd, no install. I'm planning on using Stinger AntiVirus. Cwshredder for CoolWebSearch removal. PC Wizard for gathering system hardware and software info. My question is this, does anyone know of a standalone spyware scanner? Similar to AdAware or SpyBot? I know that it wouldn't be long before the programs were out of date. I'm not worried about that as much. It's intended to help those family and friends that are computer clueless! "What's a spyware scanner?" ""Antivirus....I don't want that right?"
I'd like to have a disk like this for when their computers run like sludge from crap overload! I could pop in the disk and get alot of said "crap" off the system. Maybe not all, but it could make the system more useable so "proper software" could be installed.
So, in short I'm looking for a spyware scanner I can run from a cd. Any thoughts? Any suggestions for other utilities that would be useful on such a disk? My only stipulation is that it runs from the cd, no install. Well, that and I'd prefer freeware!
Thanks in advance for any info!
