    Antivir takes only 1-2 mins, usually closer to 2 mins. Avast takes a long time though on thorough scan, about 1 hour 30 mins. Yes, antivir can scan that fast.

    Ohhhh! 80GB (of course), not 80MB. (I could scan 80 Mb myself by just reading all the files on the disk.)

    Has anyone successfully used the trial version?

    There's a downloadable version on CNET. Just search for ESET NOD32. Looks like version 3 just came out. Just downloaded it and my previous 8-hour McAfee scanning nightmare seems to be a thing of the past. 32% done and it's only been running for about 3 minutes. (note: this older machine is running on a Pentium 4, so I expect others will have much faster scanning times).

    Actually, I think Nod2.7 is even faster than 3.0...but that's beside the point. They're both incredibly fast and good.
