    You need to connect to the "root\SecurityCenter" root in WMI and then query for the AntiVirusProduct class.

    This thread provides some details.

    This will NOT work for all AntiVirus programs. There is nothing that I know of that will.

    This should work, however, for those AntiVirus programs that provide WMI providers
    for their product. Not all antivirus programs do.
