    Cool Spybot on USB key

    Don't know if this has been done before but has anyone been able to install Spybot on a USB key?

    It was designed from the beginning to run wherever you want Even from bootable CDs (where you don't even have write acces) through a PE disk... so: just try it, you don't even need to install it there, it should be sufficient to copy the program folder of any installation onto the stick

    See the following thread for an earlier discussion of the U3 technology.

    Hello,

    Something like that is already "available":

    At the moment, we have to check if the creator haven't change anything security related so that we can allow it.

    Apart from that, Spybot-S&D can be easily used with an USB stick, even if the solution is not perfect. Just install it on the PC and then copy the installation folder on the USB stick.

    Here are some workarounds:
