    So I have a question. I found this antiviris program called clamwin. I would like to know if its good or not. I have Norton 360 2010 edition currently installed.

    there decent last i heard they passed the virus bulletin tests to be certified so its much the same as avast AVG free etc etc as long as its certified its good enough for the average user

    and for the record i hate norton

    basically if its certified with the VB 100 its good enough

    http://www.virusbtn.com/vb100/rap-index.xml

    basically in that little graph there the ones cloest to the top and the farthest to the right is the best ;) hope that helps if u dont see your AV on there look up who the creator is example Norton = Symantec


    the only downside to Clamwin is its a manual only scanner meaning it has no automatic detection so u have to scan files manually so its rather limited
