Would it be possible to forward this...

Re: Clam Antivirus

My security in Windows is Sandboxie its the best "in my opinion" security you can have installed on your machine. I know I've tried them all well almost all. You could pick up 5 Trojans 6 Worms 3 Drive by's and 10 Back Doors not to mention a Bot and a Rootkit.. all gone with one swift click.. :wink:
