Download Free Antivirus for Pen Drive
  

Hi,

I frequently use my pen drive for transferring videos and music, but I am afraid of getting viruses.
Is there any portable free antivirus that should be able to protect the flash drive from viruses being copied into it?
Any solution there?

Thanks

Re: Antivirus for Pen Drive

Since it is a removable hard-drive, you do not need to install an antivirus ON that.

Meaning, the pen-drive cannot function in isolation. It needs to be plugged into a pc or laptop.

Install an AV program on that pc or laptop. Whenever you plug the pen-drive in, run a virus check on the entire pen drive, or selected files from the pen-drive. Once the check shows 'all clear', you can copy files from the pendrive to the pc.
