It seems that clamav runs on unix.
Correct me if I'm wrong.
Cos when I browse through clamav/3rd party, they gave me the idea of *nix
environment.
Is it true??

Can I run it on windows platform??

Neil:

I'm looking for a new antivirus to buy, and among other things, I'm
looking for one that is not going to sound alarms at my tools (one
even went so far as to block execution and try to delete John the
Ripper and some others).

Anyone have any recommendations for stuff thats worked well for them?

Train your antivirus not to delete your cracker toys, but REPORT only.

I use ClamAv. It doesn't scan in REAL time on my XP machine. I have it set
to scan every six hours.

clamav.net
Look for the "third party software" link.
Then scroll down and look for Clamwin.

IT'S FREE
