    Best Command line/Boot time Anti-Virus

    What are the current best ones out there? i'm currently gathering tools which I might need tomorrow!

    I've currently got Sophos SAV32CLI and Malware Bytes - ClamWin Portale and SpybotPortable.

    Any others people recommend either bootable linux disks or portable or runable in safe mode?

    Thanks

    toby

    AVG Rescue CD is quite cool. Updated for latest definitions all the time so downloading = full updates.
