F-Prot. For my Windows 2000, my Debian, my Kubuntu, my Solaris 10, my Windows 98 and my DOS boot CDs.

One thing that particularly pleases me about F-Prot is that all versions other than the Win32 one are free for home users. So, if I one day decide to become legal, I will only have to pay for the Windows version.

I also like a lot the facts that it is very fast and very un-eye-candyish (therefore, nicer on resources than those scanners that display fancy animations while scanning)

The scheduler is very good and flexible as well.

do any of you have any opinions on the free malware scanner by a-squared?  a friend of mine swears by it, and it seems pretty solid and fast.  friends keep coming to me for help on their virus infested computers, and i'm trying to find some fast, effective tools to clean up their systems.  i usually install avg's free software, but the virus scan takes forever, and in my opinion, its always good to secondary scanner to use in addition.  so what do you think?  do you know of any solid, objective reviews on it?  thanks.

hmmm, that is interesting, and slightly dissapointing.  but i haven't had much respect for cnet since their absurd review of "popular audio codecs."

You can also take into account the user reviews.
