    i thought they used their own engine now.

    they did used to use Panda, then they used to use Kaspersky but now i think its their own technology.

    The Blink suite is free for a year. The av component uses the Norman engine and the firewall should be able to be disabled if you want.

    If you don't mind creating a free AOL email account you can download their free "McAfee VirusScan Plus Special Edition".

    its different though, aol can only be regeistered in us, and it says aol all over the mcafee security centre and it is slightly degraded with little less function, while the one i was talking about gives you the full version.

    Stupid page doesn't work, LOL....

    ---> An error occured during the trial registration, please try again later.

    Personally I think that Avira AntiVir for free is a tough one to beat... :)

    As to free AVs -- with respect to *certain* AVs, their company's "zero" price accurately reflects what their product is truly worth (such being the case for Ahn Labs, Comodo AV, & PCT AV perhaps?).

    OTOH -- the McAfee 1-year freebie at the link provided by computergeek (post #16) seems on the up & up. Is there a hidden catch somewhere? If not, that is a dadgummed fine AV at a jolly good price.
