I re-read my post and thought I was to harsh.

short answer, request proper section. Demands will be met with laughs and ignores.

I agree

However to my knowledge there is no open source, free antivirus besides ClaimWin. Personally I have found that ClaimWin rarely detects anything that's wrong. Your problem is that creating a good anti-virus is hard. It takes a lot of work to make it and then constantly update it against all the threats. Most people don't have the time or money to make this free to all the world.

Personally I use AVZ

Personally I use AVZ Antivirus. Actually I use both AVZ and ClamWin. I'm not sure if it's portable, but at least it's working mobile.
Don't get scared about the page which is only in russian, the program has an english language Wink

Can't download

We can't download the program because we don't read Russian.

Yes, but..

that "poor guy" doesn't seem to read full threads, and either posts info that doesn't pertain to the topic, like here, or flames a person asking a question.

Clamwin is the only open

Clamwin is the only open source antivirus that is portable, and one of the few open source antiviruses at all.

http://pendriveapps.com/category/portable-antivirus-firewall/

has several utilities for removing viruses, worms, and spyware from your machine with admin priveledges [links clamwin as well], but most of those utilities are closed source freeware, with only basic scanning and removal features.

Some good ones

Avast Virus Cleaner
Sophos Anti Rootkit
McAfee Stinger

are the ones I've gotten from the site I linked to above. all three work great, and for lack of any real knowledge of what's better, I run them all.

Spybot S&D is portable by virtue of no required installation [if you just unzip and run], but, yes, it is huge.

I found a portable version of Adaware, but it isn't a legal one to post, so good luck if you're looking for it. It also works fine.

Way huge

I love Spybot Search and Destroy, and I use it on both of my computers. However the program is huge, and takes up a lot of RAM on the computer.

Spybot S&D is free for

Spybot S&D is free for private users. But just because it`s free of charge it doesn`t mean it`s open source. Check if you really can download the source before you say that.
