Download MULTI_AV.EXE from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Multi_AV.exe

To use this utility, perform the following...
Execute; Multi_AV.exe { Note: You must use the default folder C:\AV-CLS }
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close

Execute; C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS }

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go
through your
FireWall to allow it to download the needed AV vendor related files.

C:\AV-CLS\StartMenu.BAT -- { or Double-click on 'Start Menu' in C:\AV-CLS}
This will bring up the initial menu of choices and should be executed in Normal
Mode.
This way all the components can be downloaded from each AV vendor's web site.
The choices are; Sophos, Trend, McAfee, Kaspersky, Exit this menu and Reboot the
PC.

You can choose to go to each menu item and just download the needed files or you
can
download the files and perform a scan in Normal Mode. Once you have downloaded
the files
needed for each scanner you want to use, you should reboot the PC into Safe Mode
[F8 key
during boot] and re-run the menu again and choose which scanner you want to run
in Safe
Mode.  It is suggested to run the scanners in both Safe Mode and Normal Mode.

When the menu is displayed hitting 'H' or 'h' will bring up a more comprehensive
PDF help
file.  http://www.ik-cs.com/multi-av.htm

Yes, there is Avast  and there is also AntiVir and AVG which are all free anti
virus
applications.

There is also BitDefender 8 which is a free "On Demand" scanner.

The advantage of the Multi AV Scanning Tool is it uses command line scanners and
has several
modes of operation and does not require a formal installation.  Another
advantage is it
includes 4 scanners from 4 different AV vendors.

command prompt run "clamscan -i -r c:\"

Better yet, I'll just tell you now that you don't have many. Saves the time
it takes to download ClamAv (if this is indeed a genuine download site).
Clam is still not the most thorough scanner and it is and was "not" really
designed to scan other than certain vector malware. It was/is designed
for scanning for email vector malware. It even says so on their site IIRC.
