I have run it on my desktop when I am booted into NT. Understand that I
get the postmsater mailbox and the spam repository for several domains so
I see 30 - 100 viral messages per day. So far AVG has caught everything
thrown at it.

If you must boot a MS product, and that product must have access to the
internet, AVG works as well as anything else. Just an impression, not an
all inclusive review.
