My question has to deal with the AntiVirus brand of software. I have found a ClamWin Free Antivirus. It is free and open source; my question is their a huge difference as far as doing the task of finding virus,spyware, and malware with this software vs. the huge company's of Syemtech and McAfee.
Do you suggest any free and open source antivirus?
