Thanks. I don't use the free AVG on windows: I get McAfee Enterprise for free through my work. And the AVG free won't let me turn off the email scanner, which has ~75%-90% crash rates on the machines I've tried it on, requiring me to reboot before I can attempt to check my email again...

I use ClamAV to scan all incoming e-mail on my mailserver with very good results. I haven't ever used it as a file-scanner but I imagine it would serve adequately. I frequently use AVG antivirus as well. Their "free" edition is free to download and use at home on a single computer. See http://free.grisoft.com for more info. The non-free versions are more reasonably priced and (IMO) in some ways superior to the other Windows AV products I've used, most notably in ease-of-use and staying up-to-date.
