Active Virus Shield

activevirusshield.jpg Active Virus Shield is a free virus scanner application for Windows. While it’s AOL rebranded, don’t despair since it’s actually a Kaspersky Lab product and is actually highly regarded. The nice thing about this is that while the documentation and the website hasn’t been updated to reflect as such yet, this free “virus shield” is now also Vista compatible. So if you’re running that memory hog of an OS and you’re looking for a little free virus protection and can handle the AOL brand, then Active Virus Shield is right up your alley.
Oh yeah, it’s free, but you have a license that only allows one year of “free”. We’re not sure what happens after that year and if you have to get a new version or you just get another license. Mainly because we don’t usually touch AOL branded things.
