As far as I know, and I may be wrong on this one, is that you aren't going to find a free downloadable virus scanner that is worth anything. Go to www.sophos.com and you can download their most recent version for free as an evaluation. You do have to enter your email and some other info. But as for updating it you could download the full new version as an eval version if they let you. Otherwise you'd be SOL. If you are a college or university student it is likely that they have a virus scanner software available through their IT dept. Otherwise cough up the $30-$40 for Norton or McAfee.
