    I use AVG at present, and find it fine, however I noticed this Free Anti Virus program, and wondered if anyone was using it, and if so how good is it? It's called AntVir and can be found at:-

    Its been around for a while but ive never felt its a serious player.

    In terms of free AV's GAV is great, despite the real time protection not been in place as yet.

    AntVir's virus detection firgures seem a little low to me, NAV detects about 10,000 more threats that it does (as of 2003-03-15 beta defs NAV detects 63300).

    So detection is a little lower than the big antivirus companys.

    Its interface is poor to IMO. May be nice to watch the devlopment of this but its already branched out into a commercial edition so the free one may get neglected after time.

    It sure does look at least like a low cost alternative.
