Oh! it would be lovely if this were available for my U3 flash drive. I'd much rather Paypal this site than shell over my hard-earned dollars to some other company . . .

And was actually uploaded to SourceForge then, but SourceForge's primary download server went down soon after that. Portable VLC was out in time to propogate, but Portable ClamWin wasn't... so I waited to announce it until today (when you could actually reliably download it).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

thanks for all the good work and its always worth the wait

ps: the only thing I can do is test on multiple computers


...just use UPX on PortableClamWin\App\clamwin\lib\*.pyd

This portable antivirus is cool. I'm now going to try to put it into U3 format!

Hi, when I try to update virus definitions it tells me my copy is outdated 0.88.2 the latest version is 0.88.3 and gives me a link to the site to download. Its states to click a button to download....but....there is no button to download. Is anybody else experiencing this problem?.....Or am I just blind ?
