    Hi, I have an antivirus already installed, I am wondering if it'd be alright is I just used winpooch with it, or Could I just run winpooch by itself since I already have an antivirus.. Do I have to install clamwin? would it be alright if I did?

    you could install it and see what happens when you do these tests.

    this first one is a safe trojan test
    http://www.misec.net/trojansimulator/

    and this is a virus test

    if clamwin stops the virus and winpooch the tojan tests then maybe it's OK to use by it self. isn't there a winpooch forum?

    I just installed it w/o Clamwin, I'm running Norton IS 2006
    ... It sounds like an open source version of Winpatrol.
