FYI, ClamXAV is *NOT* free!

Tell me, how can one be sure that if one downloads the "free trial" and 
installs the software, one isn't, in fact, loading malware ON to one's

Who checks to make sure that this doesn't happen?

The user of the computer might well remain totally unaware that anything 
may be amiss. Something to think about!
