Check out this Wonderful Website: Virus.gr

I found a great site with all sorts of information about viruses and antiviruses called Virus.gr. The website is from Greece and among many other valuable resources has free virus scans and comparative tests that rank antivirus programs.

Click here for a link to the free virus scans and programs.

According to Virus. gr, the best from recent testing is a little known antivirus program called G Data from a company in Bochum, Germany. Second is F-secure.
