I'm running Antivir Guard after uninstalling NAV. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if it scans my e-mails in or outgoing? i went to their website and it didn't really say! If it doesn't, would you know of a good one i could download?

Thanks in advance

I use AVG Anti virus and it DOES scan Email both in and out

It's free and it updates itself automatically.

It works very well with XP, too

It will be scanning your mail when it get's written to the hdd.

Install Clamwin if you want to scan your mail. It's free and you can keep antivir for scanning ondemand.

Antivir has better detection rates over AVG.

the resident Virus Guard serves to monitor file movements automatically,
e.g. downloading of data from the internet


http://www.free-av.com/


It appears that it will scan any Email file you attempt to download, which is the important thing. It makes no specific claim to scan files you attach to an Email.

John

Hello all,
Thanks everyone for all the replies!! Since i already have Antivir i'll stick with that and take Stidyup's advice and download Clamwin!

Thanks again
