    I will assume that you have no Linux security experience. If you did, you would not be listing a bunch of worthless AV programs.

    P.S. There is only one firewall in Linux -- it's called IPtables. The rest are merely GUI front-ends.

    This assumption is right, I know practically nothing on Linux. This was collected by one person at virustorjunta.net. Perhaps this part should be omitted.

    I didn't know that.

    Does "Spyware Doctor Starter Edition (Google) has real-time protection?

    Thx,
    Gor

    Yes but, I have read that the starter edition definitions come from a didn't server than the paid and are slower and not as extensive. I think the real time protection in the starter is not as extensive as the paid either. This info used to be posted on Gizmo's freeware site about spyware doctor sd but I don't see it anymore.
