Let's see online scanners, there's one for trend and Panda which are popular..
I think there's one for Dr web and several others too but you can scan only indidivual files.

a conflict with the two AV programs, do I first disable Norton Auto-Protect and the
LiveUpdate before installing AVG AV? Also is there a way to disable the
AVG Monitor so I can still have Norton as my resident scanner?

Generally you should disable ALL programs (not just NAV)except Explorer and Systray, thru Ctrl/Alt/Del, before installing any program. (unless your online).
Sorry i just can't remember how to disable AVG's resident protection, it was a while ago when i had the program, but i'm sure it isn't that difficult. After install, and a system restart, just disable NAV protection while you go thru AVG looking for the correct way to disable things. Hopefully someone will post here who currently uses AVG. Hth
