Wanted: no install anti-virus

Specs: WinXp Pro/Fedora Core 2, 500

Looking for anti-virus that does not have to be installed.

Like something I could run off a cd but does not need to be installed.
Why you ask because I would like to run more then 1 anti-virus program but I know the various programs do not play well together.

This is why I would like a non installed one.
Also I am on dailup and using the online versions take for ever to run.

I am currently using Avast as my main anti-virus program, I am very pleased with it and have no desire to change.

Since I asking would you know of programs like Ad-Ware and Spybot, might also run off a cd?

Most of the time it is easy to install 2 antiviruses on a computer as long as they are setup properly and not using the same engine..I currently have F-secure as my real-time AV and NOD32 setup as a on-demand scanner only.F-secure has 4 different scanning engines with one being the "Kaspersky engine".And with NOD32 on-demand, feel i have the best of both worlds.
