    ClamAV for Windows + On Access Scanning + Auto Updates

    Not tried this myself yet, but it looks interesting:

    SourceForge.net: ClamWinRT

    And here's the autoupdate script:

    SourceForge.net: ClamWinUpdate

    Requires that you have ClamWin installed of course:

    SourceForge.net: ClamWin Free Antivirus

    Hmm, looks like it's worth testing, there was a project a while back that integrated ClamAV to get on access scans but I think it's long abandoned now.

    EduGeek.net

    Last time I checked the detection rate on ClamAV it was about 15% lower than most commercial AVs - is that still the case?

    No, it's about the same for new virus signatures. For older viruses, they add signatures when time permits, so detection there can be a little weak.
