 Security AntiVir Personal Edition - free home antivirus protection
I've been using AVG Free Antivirus for years now. After Dec 31, 2004 they will no longer support the free version. I'm shopping for a new free antivirus product. This week I'm trying out AntiVir. I've tested it and so far I've got no complaints. I ran a complete scan  last night and I was impressed. It scans inside of cabs, zips, rars and other compressed files.
UPDATE!!! ------- I was wrong. Apparently AVG will still offer a free version after Dec 31, 2004.
