Do what Jake_HT told you and you should be OK.
But that's why "classic" AV's are useless. Do yourself a favor and use a firewall and a HIPS doubled by Firefox + NoScript and AdBlock.
Or use Sandboxie for browsing.

Sounds like "Antivirus 2009/2010/2011" to me. If I recall they actually install a sandboxie on your machine and run it from there.

All the same crap, different name (security tool seems to be the most popular these days, and you can insert "Vista/XP" in front of the Antiviruus 20XX names that you've mentioned). Hell, there's even one out there calling itself Security essentials, only this one is a "trial version" that wants you to pay for the full version..... ;)
