Thanks for the info. That's a real pity, since there is a handful of AV programs which I can download as ISO and put either onto a CD or a USB.
I'd like to be able to do the same thing with MBAM. If I have it on a stick, then I can periodically update the database by manually downloaded the latest database.
True is that most of the cd/usb av runs under a Linux OS.
Since the System Repair Disc is a WinRE with a menu and putting that onto a USB stick is easy (I've got one.), then I'd like to be able to put MBAM on the stick. Haven't really tried it. The RE creates its own registry and doesn't alter the user's registry.
Oh well, I'll just live with it. Thanks.
