Norman (http://www.norman.com/trialversions.shtml) works fine with me, although there are probably better ones.

The Best one is McAfee VirusScan
Its not free (costs like Ģ25) But the upgrades are free.
Anyway, if you dont want to spend your money, look in the internet. There are lots of pages where you can download it.

That's right Jorgito, try any warez page, or kazaa.

Umm... Looks to me like you told him about "Norman," something which I've never heard of.

Personally, I use Norton AntiVirus by Symantec. In my experience, it is less of a memory hog than McAfee ViruScan, and has better auto-protect features.
