Free Virus Detection Software Solution

Virus detection is something I'm always asked about by teachers, parents and students. I often recommend AVG's anti-virus software version 7.5 to these people. I've just upgraded my home laptop to the new version of this protect. Over the years I've been very impressed by this software features and have no problems recommending it as an alternative to vendor software.

I have a link to the download here.

Cheers

I think AVG won't be free for long. I found this on their website:
GRISOFT is announcing a new version of the AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition. This new 7.5 version with improved performance and full compatibility with the latest Windows Vista version is available. Users that are using AVG Free 7.1 will be provided with a specific dialog, within the next few weeks, with the opportunity to choose the right option fulfilling their needs. AVG Free 7.1 version will be discontinued on 15th of Jan 2007.

Too bad, I've been recommending it to folks for quite a while.

Yes... I had heard rumours :(
Perhaps Jan 15 will be the time to start testing out open source solutions like Clamwin :)
