Free AntiVirus software supplier query

  Belatucadrus 11:54 12 Sep 2010

Not a problem as such, I was just looking at my list of currently available AV freebies, a list that is now much longer than I can ever remember it being :-

Microsoft Security Essentials
PC Tools
Digital Defender
Panda Cloud
Kingsoft Cloud
DriveSentry Desktop
SecureIT Free
EAV antivirus suite
Nano (Beta)
Antivirus Docter

Additional backup security software

Clam AV for windows

Not an argument on the merits of any of these or a desire for recommendations just a query. Anybody know of anymore ?

PS. I do know about BKAV, but can't find a suitable English language page for the freebie.
PPS . Anybody want links to any of the above ask and I'll post, just that there's rather a lot of them and I can't be fagged to add that many hyperlinks.

Just a warning. Be carefuill now as there are many scam "A/V programs" out there that pretend to be what they are not and actually infect your PC and then hold you to randsome to clean it.

Thanks for that timely reminder Mantis, while as I said I can't comment on how good they are the ones listed are in their genuine form OK. Some of them have suffered from mal/scareware merchants pirating their names though.

Also useful if you want to check up on any anti virus software is VirusBulletin click here you will need to register to view the comparatives which is free and well worth doing or subscribe to the full service to get the full text of the comparative reviews. Something I'm far too mean to do.
