 Scanning for viruses with Knoppix

"First, with the Knoppix disc, the OS that might possibly be infected is completely powered down, so anything that might have been running in memory is gone. Second I'm booting into a completely different OS, so I don't have to worry about the infection somehow running accidentally under Linux. Third, Knoppix and the virus scanner in it is free, so I can burn many copies of it and scan multiple machines at once."
