    Is there a Linux AV that can check a Windows drive?

    Just to be as sure as possible of checking from within a clean environment.

    I don't believe that would happen here, those of us that use Linux here are not zealots :)
    I use Windows for Adobe and that is about it! Since I don't "game" it is not a big deal for me. Out of 5 pc's in the house 2 run Windows the hoss for Photoshop and then my significant other's older pc who is against the revolution she is like where is IE hahaha

    ahh... avast-FREE (for linux) can, within the usual FAT-ranged directories, including NTFS (under this, it can spot & give warnings only); Same goes with clamAV (more if you enhanced it with PowerTools-plugin).
