Default virus removal

I once say a product that allowed you to connect a virus infected hard drive to a computer. The device only allowed one way communication so your computer can run virus scan on the infected drive but the infected drive can not communicate back to your computer.

Does anybody know the name of this product and who makes and/or sells it?

You can do this with any antivirus software.

Stuff from a harddrive cannot magicly run unless it's told to run by something.

Norton is not very good. I use Antivir Personal Edition, which is free, MUCH faster, and stops more viruses.
