    i do not think that PCTOOOS practice offline update at all. It may have changed recently but they did not use to to do such a thing

    PC Tools AV Free

    Don't take it too seriously...:D
    If you need a Free AV, try avast! Free, AVIRA AntiVir Personal or Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Current PC Tools Free AV 8.0.0.623 is the best yet. It has only File Guard and Email (POP only) Guard which if anything, makes it rock-solid stable compared to full SD (my only experience is with XP 32-bit). A fixation with cookies and ugly popups prompting you to upgrade may be annoying for you.
    Other products mentioned are higher up my list for home use.

    PC Tools is good for non-profits and commercial users who have more than 10 PCs (or don't like MSE) and are too "cheap" to shell-out for protection.
