Can you can confirm that it's possible to install TeX Live with all
the virus scanners mentioned above?

We know at least that Microsoft Security Essentials breaks TL
installations because it locks directories while scanning their
contents.  If the installer tries to write to a locked directory it
crashes with a "permission denied" error.

It's also known that Avira doesn't cause problems.

If anybody has experience with other virus scanners, let me know.
