This is a good online scan. It is free. I realize it does not run on your machine constantly, but good little tool for a quick scan.

I've been very happy with McAfee AV 2005. Don't like Symantec much - find that it slows me down. McAfee AV 2005 can be picked up for $49 at Staples or Business Depot! Try going to your local computer store, some will sell an OEM copy for like $20.
