Portable virus scanners

Since Clamwin have updated their scanner to v0.97.6 I've had nothing but
trouble with it. It will crash the PC if I stop a scan or update while
it is in progress, then cause some major file system errors on the drive.

Are there any other scanners that can be made portable?

Probably on a Live Cd thats bootable, then scans the target disk.

Was looking for a portable scanner, not rescue disk. One which keeps
itself updated with small incremental updates, not download hundreds of
MB every time it is.

I have a very limited bandwidth usage per month.

This is the latest and greatest 'stand alone' AV scanner:  Comodo Cleaning
Essentials.  Simply awesome, and gets stuff others miss.
