Good, easy to install virus scanner

Hello All,

Does any one know of an easy to install, inexpensive virus scanner / cleaner for fedora? I would like to find something that will protect SAMBA shares and provide real time threat protection, if there is such a thing.

Thanks a million everyone!

Check out Bit Defender. Almost daily updates, free for Linux users, fairly fast, a snap to install. I don't think it offers real-time detection, but could be wrong (installing such things is beyond me, with the kernel manipulation usually required).
