I work for a company that uses laptops for testing. I have to setup around 10 at time usually. I am trying to come up with an effective way to scan these computers for viruses when they return to the office. The catch is I have to find something that doesn't install any software on the machine. What would honestly be perfect for me would be something that works like McAfee free scan. The computers have an internet connection while I configure them so if I had something like that running on one of our webservers, or it's own dedicated server so the server would update with definitions as they were available. The free scan installs an Active X control which is perfectly fine. I just can't install Norton or AVG or anything like that. Does anyone know of anything like that?

Portable Antivirus:

But most of them don't scan for all viruses. Clamwin scan for all viruses but it is considered not good antivirus.

I find this to be a good option ESET Online Scanner
No installation required.
