Just wondering if anyone has used CalmAV (Under Windows and Linux) and how good it's detection rate was?
I use a number of Windows and Linux based PC's and laptops, currently only the Windows machines have any anti-virus/anti-spy ware (mix of AVG and NOD32); after the recent problems with AVG I'm looking to dump it and (if possable) move to a single AV package, ClamAV cought my eye because it runs on both Windows and Linux and it's Open Source.
hmmm... avast is pretty good at finding stuff (I like the boot time scanner it has), but the problem with it is that it seems to take FOREVER to start up, even on relatively modern hardware. It also seems to slow down the windows startup. So, when I fix people's computers I use avast to do a lot of the disinfecting, but when I set up a new install of winXP i like to use AVG Free/clamwin for AV and spybod/adaware for anti spyware, and it seems pretty effective for me at least. People can say what they will about ClamWin, but it saved my ass one time from a trojan that AVG didn't pick up, so I keep it around just in case.
