   Anyone know if there is an API to list the antivirus that are installed

way to retrieve these informations, i need to do a program to acomplish
   I've searched all sites but got none yet. Only OPSWAT SDK but it is
a payd SDK.

Microsoft now has a VAPI, but I don't know that all the vendors are using it yet.

If you have registry access, you can simply search for the appropriate keys. That's how I do it - using KiXtart I can determine major and minor revs as well as dat versions by reading the registry keys.
