Below are some current Anti-Virus(AV) programs. To download (FTP) the current version to your system, simply click on the item desired. I have listed them in order of strengths based upon personal experience. IF you want/need to see something added to this list, leave me a note. Also, the file sources are secure! In otherwords, directly from the authors system or their official distribution site, or both. This way you can be assured you won't get a hacked and cracked copy.(Last Updated 9-Jun-2002)
