In response to the recent arrests in the computer hacking/bank fraud scheme (http://beta.wnyc.org/articles/wnyc-news/2010/sep/30/authorites-charge-60-people-computer-hacking-scheme/), I heard a commentator on NPR say that current antivirus software will not do the trick. The suggestion was to put your browsers on a read-only CD and run it from there only.

My questions are:
1. Is this necessary?
2. Would it work?
3. How do you install browsers directly to discs? I know that Chrome, for one, does not allow you to select an install drive.
