[Archive] AVG Linkscanner

cornixt:

Any CDO site problems caused by AVG Linkscanner? Apparently it downloads all the pages found in a Google search, meaning that any search for Chaos Dwarfs is going to produce at least one hit to the page, even before the user clicks on the link. This would push up web stats artificially and increase bandwidth issues.

I’ve disabled the linkscanner on my AVG8 (which puts an annoying “Danger!” icon in the task bar even when everything is okay), but what other free antivirus software do people recommend?
