I have been tasked with identifying suitable anti-trojan-ware for workstations. Ive been looking at AdAware. Its free and seems to do the job. Im wondering what is the catch.?

Has anyone done a review of antitrojan sofrware? Id like to know if there is a suitable/cheap/supported product that we can use to compliment sophos that will protect against malicious code, trojans, session hijacking and other web nasties.



It's good, but not free for commercial use - there's your catch (and I wouldn't exactly call it anti-trojan).

Assume you've looked at Spybot as well? http://security.kolla.de

It's not as aesthetically pleasing as Ad-aware, but it is more flexible and it's free for commercial use. I prefer it (especially after Lavasoft went through that period of not updating their software). YMMV.
