    Can you specify antivirus programs that can be installed using Shadow Defender (those who does not require a restart during installation)?

    Any verified suggestion is welcome. :)

    Thanks in advance.

    Avast, Nod32, Panda Cloud...those are three off the top of my head. MSE used to always be, but last time I installed it, it wanted a restart.

    I tried to install NOD32 yesterday with Shadow Defender on without any luck! The setup gave me an error message half way through.

    Also as on demand scanners you can use Dr.Web CureIt! and Hitman Pro (both don't need install).

    Not particularly heavy on resources (running on XP Pro SP3, 2.2GHz Dual Core, 2GB DDR2 RAM). Memory usage during idle about 90K + 165K during on-demand scanning. Average on CPU. Has a modern, minimalistic GUI, set of very interesting tools such as: Cleaning and Restore Tools, USB Drive Protection, System Diagnostic Tools. It seems to have above average detection rate.

    However, IMO price is not competitive - 1 year 1 user 25$, 1 year 2 users 40$, 1 year 3 users 60$. :D

    The best of all it can be installed using Shadow Defender. :)
