Had you started with such specific information, then you would not have been
compared to tracker. On the other hand, the content of your examples is
still unsupported. And, I might add, not very useful without any
information about what the OPERATING SYSTEM was used. I really don't
imagine that any AV program has a problem with unrecognized file extensions.
Also, if AutoCad is part of the program menu, then the cost of ANY AV
program is insignificant, and your experiences are likely not relevant to
those who are requesting free or very cheap AV programs.
