Contrary to my previous response I want to support NoOp proposal. I just 
discovered an unknown file on my fathers thumb drive. I searched the 
name and discovered a nice worm. My father connected this thumb drive 
only twice to a windows machine. Once for an external presentation once 
to transfer a document for printing to our machine.

I still don't want to bother with proprietary AV engines but I will keep 
CalmWinPortable around to scan our backups.
Scanning with Knoppix is difficult for me as I don't know is a LiveCD 
can assemble my Raid1 configuration.
