True both EPIC. I have ESET Smart Security 4.2 Business Edition and no issues at all. On my 2nd year with them. Use to have Avast, no my system is a bit faster without Avast. Didn't believe it till I saw it for myself.

The Top Dog per http://www.av-comparatives.org/ is G-Data and is now available for the US. If I wasn't getting ESET for free I would have tried GDATA out.

(GDATA detection rates is what makes them best IMO) they catch just about everything. Check the on-demand logs, they always catch 99%

1. Kaspersky
2. ESET NOD32 & Smart Security


Only reason i never liked Kaspersky was the huge amount of resources it consumed ( yes Kaspersky is so old school that only major companies used it at first and gave up on Symantic and Mcafee).
A while after Kaspersky was released ( with one language support which was Russian i believe ) Mcafee released a major upgrade that it took around 5 CD's / 1 full DvD for a copy, but that didn't help their case and they kind of lost their market share after that.

Personally i used Avast since it was Version 4, the good old blue ( A ) icon, Nothing can be compared to Avast's Boot Scan, however along with the new versions and the major changes in Version 5 and 6 the free subscription started to act lame, i used version 5 and 6 for almost 4 years and during these 4 years it never ever under any circumstances repaired a single file, whatever gets detected as a virus gets quarantined/deleted right away, I still use it tho Tounge

I didn't use BitDefender allot, same as Windows Defender, they seemed like the all good looking but no good to me.

Avira is pretty decent. No complains Tounge.
I never used Comodo or ClamWin, I don't even think i ever heard of ClamWin.

Didn't like AVG much, the version I used kept turning it self off and asking for an update every now and then " even when there isnt any "


On a side note: You might wanna add Symantic Norton Anti-Virus Wink

I vote for ESET's Smart security and Nod 32. I have been using those for a long time and never had any problems Smile
#16
I actually use Comodo Internet Security. Very lightweight, and does the job well.
Of course, part of your 'antivirus' arsenal should be common sense.
#17
McAfee Lol whatver it is
#18
i use kaspersky and avast,
anyway i dont think AVG is in the "BEST" antivirus list?
#19
Always been a big Avast fan. But I trust NoD32 the most.
Thanks to Datashack.net and FreeVPS.us for the VPS25
