Why? What do you want to use it for? I think that pretty much everyone on this site is agreed that a Portable Anti-Virus solution is not for everyday use but more as a second opinion.
You should be using something more robust that has a resident scanner, and to operate effectively that is going to require hooks into the operating system, no getting around it.
I think ClamwinPortable works perfectly well for its intended purpose.
Sure, use virustotal to check the file before you run it. That's what I do

a-squared Emergency USB Stick
a-Squared FREE - is most advanced free protection in the world
Spybot - Search & Destroy (working on portable drive well)
Avira AntiVir Removal Tool (only removal, not protect)
note: I use a-Squared + Spybot ...
MX One Antivirus,
it's completely free Antivirus that run into an USB pen :
to be added to make it work, or how can the database be some 350 kb and all the rest of the world needs dozens of mb for the database of its signatures?
OK, it uses heuristics only, it has no other ability to scan anything.
Heuristics only! Wonder what the detection success rate would be in that case?
marks this and that, in rather random matter, also additional 'tools' downloaded from the same author are marked as potential dangerous and should be sent to the author for further testing.(???)
LMAO! Well I think that sums it up then.
*removes from recommended list* - Check!
well I use ZenOK Free Antivirus lately has been improving their software for some time, I like it a lot. Virus updates are a bit slower than Symantec or McAfee. Norton’s Antivirus 2005 is a pain, but more secure.
You should give it a try

Whoa man! using an outdated engine is dangerous. you would be better off using ClamWin than using a outdated home AV.
the reason i say HOME AV is because enterprise AV have a much longer support period. i have Symantic Enterprise and McAfee Enterprise from the 2007 and 2004 era respectivly. they still would work and would get regular updates only if i manualy download the updates myself and push them out. Sadly i dont use them becuase i run a Unix Machine at home.
