Going Back to ClamWin

A couple of days ago I had a nice dialog on my screen telling me that the free version of AVG Antivirus was being discontinued and that I would need to pay AVG some cash for the latest version of their software. I think that when it comes to antivirus software, you should not have to pay some of the outrageous prices that these companies ask for.

So, I went back to using ClamWin as of today. ClamWin is a great piece of antivirus software that is free. The downside is that it does not constantly scan your system as you use it. There is a program that utilizes ClamWin to keep a constant watch over your system called WinPooch but I have yet to install it and not bring my system to complete crawl.

I am asking my readers (few as they currently may be) if they know of a way for me to utilize ClamWin to constantly monitor my system and alert me of potential issues. If you know of way to do this, please leave a comment or email me.

    AVG is still free they discontinued the 7.1 engine but you can get the 7.5 free if you dig around.

    Clamav is used on our mail server so good to use a different one on the desktop anyway.

    Get Tech-Protect at the Tech-Pro web pages. Tech-Protect utilizes the Windows port of Clam Antivirus. It will do until version 1.0 of ClamWin is ready later this year.
