So I used to use AVG, but got completely fed-up with the way it inserts itself into all aspects of your system and would hide and run sneakily in the background even when you explicitly told it not to. Seriously, it was worse than the virii I used it to get rid of! What were they thinking?
Can someone reccomend me a comprehensive virus scanner (for Windows 2000/XP) which lets me start it myself, scan what I want to, and shuts down and completely removes itself from memory when I tell it to? Obviously I want a well-supported program with regular definition updates, but I don't want it to update automatically and I don't want it to do anything at all without me explicitly telling it to. One that runs from the command line would be awesome beyond words, but I'll put up with a no-frills GUI if I have to.
Does that even exist? Or am I dreaming of a bygone era when software engineers actually took some pride in their work instead of just blobbing more mustard onto their rotting sandwich-meat to hide the taste?
Help me out here guys!
(Does this post sound maybe a bit bitter; angry? Tough. So am I.)
