Now that Innoculate has bitten the dust, does anyone know of a high quality free virus protection program for download (not trial or shareware). Also preferably one with unlimited free updates.

Yes, it's called 'User Education'

Hi Steve, you can get a good Windows based antivirus program, AVG, for free, from:
http://www.grisoft.com

There are regular free virus data-base updates with automatic download and installation.

If you would be happy with a free DOS based program, then F-prot from http://www.complex.is, or ftp://ftp.complex.is
They also issue monthly updates.
I use both of these as double insurance.

The only problem I've found with AVG is that it thinks code in some older DOS utilities are viruses.
