Stop using an email program, although TB is better then OE, and use a
normal Usenet client. Super Gravity is free and has been around for a
long time, and it works quite well.

As a Sophos licence holder for many years, I can state categorically that it
didn't do
that.
What it sounds like is your user profile is/was broken.

Re: Multi_VA trashed my system (Can David H Lipman please look a this)

As an experiment, I downloaded Mutli_AV lastnight and used it from the hard
drive, after booting from a PE CD. I didn't dump System Restore, or
tempfiles ... as I wanted to see what would happen assuming the scenario was
a massive infection on the primary drive with those options being
unavailable to me.  I used CMD to run it from
 \AV-CLS.

Multi_av. exe performed as designed, however, the sophos scan took about 4
hours from start to finish. I'm assuming this had to do with System Restore
not being emptied. Also, I had forgot about a drive Image I'd saved to C:...
LOL... Sophos stopped attempting to scan it and said it could be a 'Zip
Bomp'.

Otherwise, the scan finished normally with no viruses being the result.  On
reboot into normal mode, my AVG tried to download updates and Scan at the
same time, this resulted in a program crash (my fault for not suspending
Scan on startup in AVG.)   So I stopped the scan, and killed the update
process and rebooted.   Everything was fine after that.  I manually
downloaded the updates, and then did a scan.

I can only comment on one aspect of this. With regard to the scanning
is very slow comment. It's using multiple scanners... That's going to
cause a time hit... Which isn't the fault of the multiav program
itself. It's nobodies fault really. The more scanners you use, the
longer it's going to take.

If your going to bash on a program, stick with things withen it's
authors control, eh? :)
