AVX Desktop 2000 is a powerful, fully featured antivirus suite. In addition to recognizing over 45,000 known viruses, AVX Desktop can detect unknown viruses, trojans, etc. It scans boot records, memory, and all compressed archives stored on your computer. There is also a background monitor and scheduler, as well as online and e-mail monitoring. And, if that weren't enough, the program can be setup to automatically update its own signature files! AVX Desktop 2000 also allows you to block applets, Java, JavaScript or ActiveX, because these programs can include information to be transmitted to your computer.

The program's interface is very user friendly, and the installation, setup and use was uneventful. Better yet, the price is easy on the pocketbook, unlike some of the more recognized names with their accompanying price.

You can download, install and use AVX Desktop 2000 free for 30 days. I can't imagine finding a more functional, user-friendly antivirus at a better price. You'll be sold long before the end of the trial period!
