    a² is a Malware scanner, remover and protection system which protects against Trojans, Worms and Viruses.


    you can now get a free version of the best anti-trojan, A2 (ants 2). all you need to is register

    I have found a free antivirus solution all together. We currently use it at my school as alternative to our current paid solution (and it actually works better). You can get it from http://www.avast.com. It's the Avast Home Edition 4.1. All you have to do is register it and you will receive a 14 Month license. When it expires, you simply renew your registration. Real-time scanning is a feature. Check it out.

    a few of our members really like avast

    I prefer avg, for how much less of a footprint it has...just a few mbs, with excellant protection

    if avg cost more then any other virus scanner, I would choose it anyway...it being free is the bonus

    at any rate, alan lists here for us a free anti trojan as well

    Awesome just checked it out and it found 2 likely trojans and one false negative? trojan.

    The were all dormant, but still It works and none of my other software picked them up =)

    2 were zipped downloads that were never installed and the 3rd was the winamp remote install package..whichis why i think it was a false negative...still deleted it tho ^^
