    Does the free Antivir provide adequate protection for MSNMessenger?

    Avast has a separate module whilst Antivir has the Guard for everything.

    Antivir checks mails as they are opened, same with Messenger I assume.

    Yeah, there is no need to worry. AntiVir will check everything.

    Avast doesn't have heuristic scanning capability. AntiVir has better detection
    rate and the realtime scanner will check everything from MSN messenger. So
    IMO AntiVir is the better choice. If the detection rate is not better, then
    having a seperate module for MSN messenger won't give you an edge.
