For portable second opinion scanner, TrendMicro HouseCall now functions this way instead of being web browser based.

I know this is an old thread, but I have a valid question.
I have had constant issues with Avast Rescue Disk and have lost all confidence in it.
Is EEK a valid substitute for Rescue Disk? as I have a good USB doing nothing right now since Rescue Disk again fails.
PS. I have used Trend Micro Housecall in the past when it was a online service, that worked, but not tried it lately.
Im just looking for a best freestanding backup AV that actually works reliably, in case all goes pear shaped.

It depends what you need. As EEK is portable you can use it on an USB.
But EEK doesn't create bootable media, so you need to have one ready.
