ClamAV for Windows utilizes advanced Cloud-based and community-based detection methods. These detection methods leverage the computers of your friends, family and a worldwide global community to harness their collective knowledge for securing your PC. Every time someone in this collective community encounters a threat, everyone else in the community gains protection from that same threat in real time. You no longer have to rely on the isolated security of your current Anti-Virus vendor. You are able to protect your friends and family while being better protected yourself.
What's new in this version: Version 184.108.40.206 features: new UI, enhanced community protections, new detection features.

"t's free for a reason"
Version: ClamAV for Windows (32-bit) 220.127.116.11
The application is free.
ClamAV has a long history of false positives eg. search google for "ClamAV false positive". The false positives have the effect of fooling end users into believing that the anti-virus application works well.
Very significant false positives from ClamAV include NSIS installers, Winamp player, Macromedia Flash, Macromedia Shockwave Player etc. etc. etc.
When false positives are reported to the developers for correction ClamAV is extremely slow to update. The ClamAV database is also distributed by other developers on other platforms, which in turn leads to an even larger base of false positives.
If you want something that is both reliable and won't hinder your experience on the web there are better applications out there, but they are not free.
