Hello, I hope I' am posting this in the right area, since it relates to Malware removal, etc.
Anywho, I was wondering if there was a way someone could create their flash drive into a i guess "Mobile malware removal stick". By this I mean putting a few anti-virus programs on your flash drive and inserting it into a infected pc. I have read a few articles about it before and didnt think it could be done due to the risk, I think of your flash drive getting infected also. So if you happen to know if making a dedicated flash drive a "mobile malware removal stick" is possible, I would love a quick guide on how to do so. Also what could i do to prevent me form getting my flash drive infected

Thanks for your time.

Embrace The Power Of The PC!

If you read the description of the forum Malware Removal, it says: "This forum is for help getting rid of redirection, rootkits, spyware, browser hijackers, porn dialers, thiefware, and all other unwanted parasites." -- I moved this to a more appropriate forum...

There are a number of ways to do this and there are ongoing debates about which ways are most effective... Since you are in Boot Camp, you have access to many of those discussions... If you do a Google search, you will find many others... It is not a simple answer, so please find what you need in those resources...
