I know everyone is always on the look out for antivirus solutions so I thought I'd post this link
BitDefender This one isn't fast (2 hours on a 10 gig HD), but it is thorough. BD will find things AVG doesn't.

Thanks, raw.
BitDefender also has a free online virus scan. It's been a while since I'v run it, just remembered it took FOREVER. Saw it recommended on TechTV's website when BugBear was spreading around.

I've been pleased with BitDefender's online scan. I'm downloading the resident program to evaluate now. Free is the right price for me. It'll be easy enough to disable the AVG for long enough to try this one out. Customizable skins? Hmmm.
