Also, just tested the following:

Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition on Windows XP SP1 + all
latest patches (on VMware GSX Server build 7592)
Defs: 06/13/04 rev 17

It found 5 infected items ( with the Eicar test string) and
quarantined the file.  It took approximately 1 minute to scan it.  No
crash...system stable after complete scan.


Network Associates (McAfee) VirusScan Enterprise 7.1 on Windows XP SP2
v.2142 (on VMware Workstation 4.5.1 build 7568 for Linux)
Engine: 4.3.20
Defs: 06/09/04 (4365)

This one scanned for a looong time.  I walked away and came back.  Over
20+ minutes.  It scanned 1278 items and found 10 as being infected (as
Eicar test file).  No crash...system stable after scan complete.
