i'm just assuming that the top 10 AV apps remove everything that is bad in the way of viruses and trojans, but maybe i am just being naive?

AV Comparatives

All the scanners tested here have to detect 100% in the wild virus's (this list includes Kaspersky), so yes Kaspersky should remove all known trojans which are loose.

The only problem is if the virus is new or not seen as in the wild there is a chance the scanner may not have a definition to detect and remove it.

Which is why it is always so very important to update before each scan. So at least you are protected with the very latest definintions. I use Free AVG and it updates daily. Though I still check for an update before I run it, just to be sure.

I also use aČ Free Link below in my sig. It is a wonderful program. And as it says in it's name ...it's free.


Edit: After reading stidyup's post below. I felt that I should explain aČ a bit more. :thumbsup:


a-squared (aČ) is a complementary product to antivirus software and desktop firewalls on MS Windows computers. Antivirus software specializes in detecting classic viruses. Many available products have weaknesses in detecting other malicious software (Malware) like Trojans, Dialers, Worms and Spyware (Adware). aČ fills the gap that malware writers exploit

Ewido is another good free trojan hunter and can be used along side A2.
