Free Portable Anti-Virus for Thumb-drive?

I'm using portable apps, from portableapps.com. I don't really like the selection of anti-viruses.

Is there a free portable anti-virus I can put on my thumb-drive? I would be using this to fix people's computers that have viruses on them. I don't do it as a business, I just do it to help people out at work (you know how that goes haha) hence why I just want a free AV that's portable.

After reading more into ClamAV that might be the solution, I was thinking that was a Apple product for some reason. Looks to be working great with the portableapps

techhealth, have you had any experience with ClamAV, does it detect pretty good?
