I use AVG6 which is updated daily, and scans each and every morning, it also has a resident scanner that works constantly.
I've also tried Innoculate IT by computer associates
Mcaffe anti virus
Norton antivirus
and FreeAV
(latest version of all)
None of them can access the protected files because the folder and contained files are protected at OS level and the programs excecute at user level.

I didn't mean that - I meant the little PC Shops you'll find in corners or in old houses. Those sort of shops need to be helped.
