    There is no such program available. If you really want a freeware solution maybe you can try a combination of AVG (when you are living outside Europe) or F-Prot for DOS as free anti virus protection and Ants as freeware anti trojan protection. See http://www.wilders.org for links.

    This  solution has still the problem that the current Ants freeware is outdated and the next version (3.0) is not yet released. Also AVG and F-Prot are more average than good anti virus solution.

    So if you can afford you should buy a commercial solution if you are interessted in real good protection. Kaspersky Anti Virus Personal 4.0 is the only program that handles both (viruses and trojans) very good.

    There is no such a solution for free yet. You can get AVG Antivirus scanner or Avast which will scan for viruses, Trojans and other malicious codes.
    As wizard said if you can afford you should buy Kaspersky AV.
