[a bit OT]

IMHO, "real-time" anti-virus monitor programs are quite useless, and
sometimes annoying, for a desktop pc.  I've seen cases when norton
anti-virus itself somehow got affected, and made it impossible to
run *any* programs, since norton installed a hook on .exe type files.
Generally, it's good enough if you handle "alien" files with care,
and scan your pc filesystem once per several weeks.

Just my 2 cents.
