    It looks like a nice interface. For other Linux users, like Ubuntu, there is Avast antivirus from http://www.avast.com. The home edition is free and unlike other free antiviruses, it includes a realtime scanner on open files and running executables. There is also a Windows version available which I used on Vista. Although they require a registration key, it is free for non-commercial use. The non-free commercial version differs mostly in extra administrator tools.

    AVG 7.5 can`t be downloaded via AVG`s site longer.

    Looks for people`s backup copies of AVG 7.5 for Linux.
