    The Invircible has a bad review as an AV. Now they have a downloadable test set to check the effectiveness of your Antivirus called avpl. Be ware it is an executable with test virus samples, supposedly to only infect drives and programs the tester tells AVPL to do. By unlloading the test program AVPL, the infections should be removed.

    I am going to try, but I will make an image backup first :)
