Also try http://www.clamwin.com/ - a Windows port of ClamAV. I
wouldn't recommend it as your sole AV software, but it's a useful
backup if your primary one isn't catching a particular thing. (In my
case Symantec wasn't picking up an Rxbot variant, but ClamWin
identified it as a generic MS04-011 exploit.
