A very good one is online - not downloadable which compliments those that you download (lol - I have Symantec Corporate Version running and Panda finds them better then the expensive version of NAV - its here www.pandasoftware.com it also checks your emails.

AVG is good for personal use...

As for myself I'm actually trying to find one that a charitable organisation can use for free - answers on a postcard :) ClamAV is promising though less functional (and updating is broken atm), with OpenAntivirus being the ideal if it ever makes decent progress through the development stage.

Trend Micro Free Online Virus Scan (http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp)

Good for a quick scan and always uptodate since it downloads the engine and definitions whenever you go there.

I'm going to try to setup a Exchange replacement server and I think I'll use CLAM for virus scanning.

This basically cleans a lot of the newer virus.
