Sorry if this question has already been well covered :-)

I'm in the process of choosing a new antivirus program to promote to my (computer) customers. I've been prescribing NOD32 for several years but our national distributor has become uncooperative regarding commission payments so I intend to recommend another company.

Which brings me to my question: Where does one go to see genuine and authoritative comparative reports about the efficacy of antivirus software? I've just logged onto the Virus Bulletin site and that seems pretty good, but their full reports aren't free.

Anyone able to suggest another site, or lab, that produces regular software comparisons? Obviously I'm not talking about the type of sites that abound on the net, which purport to compare malware apps, but in actuality are just set up to market selected brands.

Thanks :-)

IMHO the only ones that are trustworthy and provide relevant results are AV-Comparatives, AV-Test here and for free AVs and Remove-malware, although this is a bit less scientific.
