I use the Panda USB Vaccine as well and no conflicts with Avast.  Easy to use and free.  ;)

Yes, it is installed in your machine, but it asks you if you want to vaccinate your pendrive.  The software also checks everytime a pendrive is inserted into your machine if it is clean.

You then insert the pendrive in your machine, which has the USB Vaccine as well as Avast installed...so you should be protected.  Obviously to reduce your risk, I would tell you not to put your pendrive in another machine shared by others, but I understand why you need to.

Keep in mind this doesn't support window 7 unless someone checked it ;)
