    I think it's pretty good, but it won't work on NTFS partitions and there's no real time scanning. I don't know why it is free.

    I think the problem is that it will not make use of new NTFS features like Alternate Data Streams, so could not detect a virus hidden in one. However, it is useful tool for scanning incoming files (e.g. new downloads, email attachments), especially since it can be run via the command line (allowing it to be run automatically by download managers and archive programs offering virus-scan options).
