Norton on a thumb drive?

How can I put Norton on a thumb drive and use it to scan another computer of mine that might be infected? The other computer won't currently connect to the Internet. I have enough licenses to cover this additional computer. 

Thank you.

You can do that with Norton Power Eraser.

I think what you are looking for is the Norton Bootable Recovery Tool, which you can run from a USB device to scan for malware.  Norton Security and 360 products need to be installed to run and cannot be run from a thumbdrive.

Thanks for the responses. It looks like NPE is for Windows only. Is there a Mac equivalent, or is the only comparable product the Bootable Recovery Tool? Norton seems to have quite a few products that, essentially, do the same things.

What is Norton Virus Protection Promise?

Many Norton offerings come with an additional benefit called the Norton Virus Protection Promise, which includes access to Norton experts who can work with you to diagnose and remove viruses should you run into any problems during your subscription. In the unlikely event that Symantec is unable to remove a virus from your device, you may be entitled to a refund of the Norton subscription or Norton bundle (as applicable).
