What's a good anti-virus that won't automatically delete my files?

Help! I'm trying to find a good anti-virus/internet security/all that stuff program that will give me full control of it and how it works. I DO NOT want it to automatically delete my files. I work in I.T. and have some questionable programs. I have them for security purposes and testing. Most anti-virus programs see them and delete them.

I have tried Norton 360 v2 and Internet Security 2009, but even though I have the option set to not automatically remove and to ask first, it's still deleting some of my stuff. This is unacceptable. Can someone suggest something that won't do this? I used to use Trend 2007 which worked fine. But I've never been a big fan of Trend and, besides, it's 2 years old now.

Any help/input/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

It is not so difficult. Good Av are Kaspersky, Nod32 and Norton recently :)  Kaspersky is the best option maybe right now but I would take in consideration also NOD32. Both are easy to use. A good guide for easy users may be find at Good luck

By the way. Both Kaspersky and NOD32 are first asking before choosing the way they clean.:)

Thanks for the reply. I've actually been using Avira AntiVir and it's worked well for me so far.
