Hi Topopurim.

2. download scanner-click save(where do i save too)?

Internet Explorer will give you the option of where you want to save it to. For example, you can choose to save it to the desktop then paste it to a usb drive, or save it directly to a usb drive.

3. wait for scanner to download(it shows downloading to a temp folder(where would i find this temp folder?

I don't know, but it sounds like you're choosing to save it to a temp folder, instead of one of the options in my answer for #2

also shows close dialog box unchecked-does this have to be unchecked for download to work?

That's an Internet Explorer dialog box. It doesn't matter if it's checked or not.

when i insert cd into infected machine, will it start automatically?

No.

Internet Explorer will give you the option of where you want to save it to. For example, you can choose to save it to the desktop then paste it to a usb drive, or save it directly to a usb drive. can i save directly to cd?

No. i assume an icon will be placed on desktop after cd is inserted. thanks for your help

The temp folder you see is for demonstration purposes. That will change depending on where you choose to save the file.

If you choose to save it to a cd, then when the download completes, you'll see a Windows message that "you have files waiting to be written...". Click on that message to burn the file. Note that the portable version does not update after it's run. Therefore, you should download a new copy every time you need to use it. It's easier just to download it to a USB thumb drive.
