Comment by em4020
about PC Tools AntiVirus Free Edition Jun 2011

PC Tools AntiVirus 6.1 does not work with Windows 2000: Error 102
After Installation of PC Tools AntiVirus 6.1 on Windows 2000 prof. in a VMware client the application could not start.
There came the Error message: "Error 102" with no further explanation. So I must uninstall PC Tools AntiVirus 6.1.
This is a problem, because PC Tools AntiVirus is the only AV-application, which theoretically should run on Windows 2000.
All other new AV-applications need Windows XP or later windows versions. No I will try it with the older Avast version 4.8.
