    ...this sounds like a pretty bad idea to me. IMO, virus scanning belongs on the host system only for some simple reasons.

    One, you're looking for a file (or a program you run does, doesn't really matter), only it's not there anymore. It's been quarantined by your NAS, which thinks it's a threat. Now, where is that file? How do you find it again?

    Two: a file on your NAS has been damaged after McAfffee misdiagnosed it as a threat and cleaned it.

    I'm sure there's more.

    Also, I love how they pat themselves on the back for being free....for thre years only. :P
