USB drive/antivirus

I have recently started to use Opera browser on my U3 drive, I would like to know if my antivirus software on the computer is still protecting my machine, the reseason for asking is that downloading web pages seems a lot fasterwhen I am useing the usb drive.

It doesm'y matter where tje browser is loaded from - it still runs in your system RAM the same as any other software, loaded from any other storage device.

If your AV is running on the system, it should protect you in the same manner that it always does.
