    I use AVG from Grisoft and each time I boot I can't do anything with my computer for a couple of minutes after I see the desktop because it takes that long to 'plug' itself in. I don't think it's possible to disable these background processes with the free version otherwise I'd switch them off and just do manual scans from time to time. Still I only boot once a day so it's no big deal.

    I don't think anyone has mentioned Zoom Player (www.inmatrix.com) or the Core Media Player (www.corecoded.com) yet. Then there's Color Cop (www.datastic.com) and Motherboard Monitor (http://mbm.livewiredev.com).

    I disagree.
    I have my mailservers covered with amavisd, spamassassin and ClamAV.

    Hence, I don't get annoying virii through my email.

    That said, I do a quick scan every other month or so with any of the free online ones.. I just don't feel the need to slow down IO on this machine more than it already is.

    "Common Sense" is way more effective than any virus scanner.

    I dont have a virus scanner.

    I'm generally vigilant enough not to open files from people i'm not expecting stuff from. I only download programs from reliable sources.

    Though my sister downstairs thats a different situtation she managed to infect the network twice now with a virus (not my computers) so the other computers in the house run NAV 2003.

    Trillian Pro
    Ultraedit
    Tortoise CVS
    Apache
    MySQL 4
    Latest PHP Snapshot
    Firebird
    Visual Studio
    Adobe Photoshop

    basically in that order

    If you create a machine that has all these programs you could make an image of the disk and if you need to reformat just restore the image, its all there again
    That's exactly what I need to do. I keep meaning to do it though I just forget because I get wrapped up in other stuff.
