Antivirus?

Postby NiksaVel » Fri Mar 16, 2007 3:32 am

Any of you use an antivirus? I find that it's a good thing to rerun it now and than since I usually download a lot of stuff as well as dual boot and run wine...


What I was wondering ... ClamAV or Avast?

Only on Windows ... But on Linux? Nope.

LOL... just realised that if I run avast... it automatically scans my whole filesystem... INCLUDING everything mounted on it... MEANING - every computer on my network - LOL!!! Though I'm quite sure that's not what they intended, it's not neccessarily a bad thing :) makes home virus scanning simpler :)

I did install avast in Bianca just to see how it went in and ran, and yes as you say NiksaVel it will scan all my mounted partitions
