Rising Antivirus is complete Windows security center suite. Impressively, it has a 90 day trial period, so you can really get an idea if it's for you before you buy.

Rising Antivirus provides disk scans, real-time monitors and protects the Windows registry database. It can also be set to check incoming and outgoing mails, and can update itself automatically.

There's a fair amount of flexibility in Rising Antivirus - the settings are quite comprehensive, so you can run your antivirus checks and scans as automatically as you wish. It is a nice and quiet application most of the time, with out the needless warnings and pop ups of some of its competitors. Rising Antivirus' umbrella icon sits in your system tray, but otherwise you would hardly notice it was there. It also uses little resources while inactive, and doesn't noticeably slow Windows startup times.

You can schedule specific scans of drives or folders, to occur whenever you want, and they are really easy to set up. Overall Rising Antivirus seems like a good security application, and is definitely worth trying out. Any new program of this type takes time to build a reputation of trustworthiness, but so far Rising Antivirus looks good.

New antivirus programs are always a little risky, but Rising Antivirus seems reliable. As with anything of this type, it's worth testing out before you buy.
