Ok I am sorry I know this does not exactly fit this area.
But I was seriously wanting to tap the resources of the group to find out what is the best freeware antivirus program to use.

Thanks in advance

I like AntiVir PersonalEdition

For what operating system?

I would say:

Windows - AVG
Linux - Bitdefender
Mac - Don't know, sorry

[Edit - Updated link to AVG Free]

Sorry it is XP

I have tried AVG before is it the one that uses their older program as their freeware?

No it's just limited with regards to add-ons, take a look at the updated link, there is a table of differnces between the free and commercial. Both of them use the same virus definition table, which updates automatically.

I thank you all very much for your input and help with this matter.
I was curious as to whether these two programs will scan incoming emails?
