AFAICT the problems only occur with a handful of scanners and even most of those could be satisfied by simply excluding the relevant directories. I know from personal experience that both CA Innoculate IT and CA eTrust as well as Grisoft AVG6 Free do not cause any problems with CVSNT (also see thread "Antivirus survey" from Sep 8). And if all else fails, you could still consider to install CVSNT on a Linux box. That should run fairly well without a scanner indeed. "Officially recommending" to either entirely disable AV on a Windows machine or otherwise bugger off is NOT an acceptable advice IMO, especially considering CVSNT's new corporate focus. (BTW: I'm thinking about giving the AVG7 Free beta a try. Anyone got experience with that yet - even aside from CVSNT-compatibility?)
