I tried it on my USB flash disk and it works great on any PC, i was able to update it as well. Launch the ClamWinPortable.exe inside the PortableClamWin folder then click the update button to have the latest updates and virus definition/library.

Scanned it with Bitdefender Total Security '09, Superantispyware Pro, Trojan Remover and Spyware Doctor with Anti-Virus... it's 100% clean, nice work ClamWin ^_^

I also added autorun features on my USB flash drive with ClamWin Portable Antivirus so I can scan immediately once my USB flash/thumb drive is connected to any PC. (See image below)
