AOL Offers Free Anti-Virus Tool
By: MarkJ - 09 August, 2006 (9:00 AM)

ISP AOL has teamed up with Kasperesky Lab's to launch a "FREE For Everyone!" anti-virus tool (software) known as 'Active Virus Shield'. No AOL membership is required, although you will have to follow a minimal signup procedure.

FREE Anti-Virus software, such as AntiVir and AVG Free Edition, are rare in the market and AOL's introduction of a new alternative is welcome. We don't know how effective it is, although the tool claims to offer protection against viruses, spyware, malware and Trojans, not to mention real-time scanning of files and email.

The software also includes an 'Internet Explorer' toolbar, although we're not sure whether this feature is a mandatory or optional part of the installation.
