    I was not impressed with avg but I havn't had any problems with Avast, but then again as others have stated the best anti-virus is knowledge.

    If you want a GUI frontend for it there is ClamTk too.

Upon pressing OK, it will try to connect to real-av.org and try to download more malware.
    You, my friend, are brave, along with everyone else still using Norton.

    Anyways, I use a combo of Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast!, and AVG.

    I use trend, although my copy is now obselete as i have dial-up and it wants to download a 100mb file. It got to 10 mb's left (about a good hour) and it quit downloading. And since they don't use torrents for some reason (blizzard uses torrents, and they download like a champ even on my internet) it has to download all over again.

    I am so sorry that you have to suffer like that!
