What you're describing is the definition of anti-virus software. It runs in the background and prevents virus infections.

no, what AVG and most AV programs do is one the file has enterd youtr cvomputer it then scans and reacts.
im looking for an anti-virus program that PRe-scans files before they enter my computer, or PRE-scans file/attachments on websites and lets me know if they are of any danger....WITHout having to run a seperate scan

You don't run a scan. The process runs in the background. As soon as you download or run something or the virus tries to install/replicate itself or do damage, the scanner catches it and deletes it.

If you're looking for something that scans web sites for malicious code or downloads before anything even interacts with your system, I've never heard of such software.

Yea its the most effective anti virus/spyware/malware program ive seen yet its called AntiMalware It runs it in a sandbox emulation so you can open even the most infected malware infected file ever and it would do nothing to you.

More Info: http://www.trustware.com

I understand what you want. No need to shout. It simply doesn't exist. It's not necessary. Anti-virus software stops your computer from being infected. The end results is the same.

thats just stupid though, what's the point of having software that allows the malicious files onto your computer before it scans it and picks it up.......
