I personally like Kapersky the best. Easy, reliable, catches everything even before you hit it.

If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

i think that do not exist the perfect antivirus, there is a good, very good, and so on, to get more safe make sure to have a very good antivirus, Avast, Avg, Avira, a firewall, pc tools, comodo, and malwarebyte which is a very good program useful to remove adware, worms etc.. and you will be ok.

Well, Avira AntiVir and SpySweeper are what I use. These together seem to keep my computer safe. I got SpySweeper free from some magazine offer though, so in 6 months, I won't be using it anymore. According to AV-Comparitives AntiVir is supposed to be able to detect the most real, and possible threats.

It's fast and has few false positives according to the results and the free version is fairly easy to use, although it does pop up asking you to upgrade one time every day (after the update I think)

This is part of the page while following your links Illegal Alien.

As you can see, they only allow links to av-comparatives.org which they clearly state.

Why did Kaspersky do so poorly in that test? Aren't they usually one of the top performers?

I thought they did well. They seem to have few false positives as well. Also, other testers may use different criteria.

Hey, most of us may not have used so many. I think you should be in the best position to let us know, which is the best one.

I've been using Avast for the last 6 months with no issues. Has anyone tried using Trustport Anti-virus?
