Greetings, I'm looking around for a free AV for a spare computer that isn't
used often and doesn't warrant an extra licence for NOD32

I've downloaded Antivir, but have also seen reference to active virus
shiled. However, when I went to download it I got a message


"The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a
different website's address. Security certificate problems may indicate an
attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server."  And I
was advised to close the site.

What does this mean?

Thanks Art, but that's the one I used, and having just tried it again direct
from your link, I get the same result.

I dunno why you get the Certificates alert (probably from IE) but my
point is that it's nothing to be concerned about in this case.
