I'm looking into anti-virus stuff right now, and came to this thread, but the Castle Cops URL no longer works, giving me this message:

Castlecops has ceased operation.

For additonal information, please view this Slashdot article.
The Slashdot article...

"Volunteer-powered anti-malware site CastleCops appears to have closed shop. As of Tuesday, December 23 (2008), the CastleCops home page notes: 'You have arrived at the CastleCops website, which is currently offline. . . . Unfortunately, all things come to an end.' It was reported back in June that Paul Laudanski, founder of CastleCops and its parent Computer Cops LLC, was taking a full-time job with Microsoft and was 'looking for new management' for CastleCops. The site has also long had problems with funding and with hostile action from spammers. The actual shutdown seems to have taken the security community by surprise; as late as Tuesday evening Brian Krebs was still recommending CastleCops on his Security Fix blog."
