Free Security Softwares to run from USB

Just like every home has a Medical Kit for emergencies, it pays to have something similar for your PC and Laptops. All you need is a pen drive that's loaded with essential, troubleshooting softwares. The tools listed in this list are free, and run straight from your pen drive or any USB stick, so you don't even need to install them. And yes, it also means that you can carry this 'First Aid Kit' along with you anywhere you want to help yourself or any of your friends.


The portable version of ClamWin Antivirus can be used to scan your PC for viruses. This is extremely useful because malwares can sometimes disable the antivirus software installed on your PC. With ClamWin on your flash drive, you will be able to identify and remove infections.
To keep your PC spic-and-span, you will also need to routinely scan it for spywares and malwares. These are pesky programs that get installed along with free softwares, or if you might have clicked on an unknown web link in and E-mail. To take care of these malicious programs, also keep SpyBot - Search and destroy on the flash drive. Just make sure that you have updated versions of ClamWin and SpyBot on your flash USB stick at all times.


If your PC seems sluggish while performing basic taks like opening a document or during web browsing  sessions, its probably because of the temporary files created by the softwares  that you use. To purge your system of this junk try CCleaner.
Extract the contents of CCleaner's '.zip' to the folder of the same name on your pen drive. Now launch the software by double-clicking the '.exe' file & start spring cleaning your machine.


Recuva comes with a wizard driven interface that makes it easy to retrieve files that you might have permanently deleted from your PC. A 'deep scan' lists deleted files in a friendly searchable format, along with the option to preview them if they are images. That said, there is no guarantee that you will be able to retrieve deleted data. Also , if the files you're trying to recover are extremely critical, it is best to handover this job to a professional company that will do it for free.

Revo Uninstaller

Uninstalled softwares sometimes leave residue in the form of files and registry entries. These are not easy to find and end up hogging precious space. Revo Uninstaller saves you the trouble of manually cleaning these files by thoroughly uninstalling these programs. It can also be used to remove those stubborn toolbars that refuse to go away. An alternate to Revo Unistaller is PC Decrampifier- a portable tool that does just as its name suggests.

AutoRuns for Windows

If your PC takes a long time to boot to the desktop, then it is probably beacuse of the number of programs that are configured to launch during the windows start-up process. With AutoRuns, you can cut down on these programs. It analyses your machine and shows you the services & programs that are scheduled to run during the boot process. Carefully deslect the ones that are not required at launch and you will improve start-up times.
You may also use WinPatrolToGo to some effect.

Note: Please format your USB drive to the FAT32 format instead of the NYFS format to make it ready for the installation of these or any other software for that matter.
