How to protect my PC from a virus

  Sturmey 19:42 07 Feb 03


I am looking for a virus scanner for my Windows XP computer, however I do not want a program that monitors my PC all the time as I have a seperate firewall and email virus scanner on my computer.

If anyone knows of a good, light virus scanner please let me know, I just need it for checking programs I download from the net.

Well, if you don't want it running all the time go with AVG or Norton and set it not to run at startup. Then launch it for the individual files that you want.
