In relation to scanning a Windows partition for malware I see that both AVG and Avast install on Linux painlessly. Is there a full list of free-as-in-beer Windows anti-virus, or general anti-malware for Windows, available from Linux?

For Microsoft Windows-specific threats
These applications are useful for computers (typically, servers) which will pass on files to MS Windows users. They do not look for Linux-specific threats.
