I'm looking for a good, low-footprint anti-virus package which fulfills these criteria:
- Strong detection rates against viruses and rootkits, from a vendor with a good track record for effective anti-virus protection.
- No scanning of the local network & Internet HTTP, POP3, etc; or at least the ability to permanently disable these modules. While I fully understand that the Adobe Flash, Adobe PDF and Sun Java are major attack vectors today, I still do not want the antivirus to interfere with my browser and mail.
- Should still be resident in-RAM and actively scan all files opened, any USB/DVD media attached, etc. In other words, not a strictly on-demand scanner like ClamWin.
- Runs on Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit.
I have used ESET NOD32 for years, and generally been happy with it. However, never versions of NOD32 override my choice of protection modules -- after I disable the HTTP & POP3 scanning, NOD32 silently enables them upon reboot.
tl;dr something like NOD32, but which will obey my choices regarding active modules. Any suggestions?
