    I use NOD32, KAV, and Norman - NOD is my resident (lower resources) - KAV for better detection and superior unpacking ability - Norman for "sandbox" technology. (on demand)

    I think it's about time 'cause IMHO, it's extremely ironic that I need more time searching my tiny hard drive than I would need to search the enormous WWW.

    I agree but it's still beta, maybe they'll improve it.
    BTW, I still haven't tried it, but the idea is a good one.

    try ava, it's great!

    Google Desktop can search for terms within documents and emails, and Ava Find can find any file on your hard drive instantaneously.
