    Has anyone ever heard of WinCleaner Anti-Virus? Does anyone know if it's any good? Iwas loooking through microcenter.com and ran across this virus scanner among 3 others I haven't heard or seen before. I'm asking about this AV cuz it looks it's not a big and bulky as NAV2003. Plus it'a a little bit cheaper. Heres the link I found it at http://www.microcenter.com/search_results_e.phtml?coordinate_group=V2D5

    This looks like another version of Cat's Quick Heal.

    It is! It uses Quick Heals engine and core.

    Not very informative website; no way for us Europeans to get our hands on it that I can figure out. I would not rely on it as a first line of defense until tested extensively.

    And an oldfashioned one at that. :D

    But although looks can be deceiving. I'll take TechnoDrome's word for it any day.
