    i tried it last year and i didn't like it at all. maybe the newer version is different, but the old one had no real-time scanner and it was only available on-demand. eventhough it is free, i thought there were better options.

    Not suited as a primary Home AV. It's main strength lies on Mailservers.

    I have noticed that a number of ISP's, for example FastMail, now use ClamAV on their servers; http://www.clamav.net/whos.html.
